Brickyard Road Races set for July 26 on 2013 GRAND-AM Schedule

The Brickyard Grand Prix and Brickyard Sports Car Challenge will take place Friday, July 26, 2013 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as GRAND-AM Road Racing released its 2013 schedule Friday, Sept. 28.

The Brickyard Grand Prix is the eighth of 12 events on the 2013 Rolex Sports Car Series schedule, while the Brickyard Sports Car Challenge is the seventh of 11 races on the 2013 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge schedule.

Both GRAND-AM series made a popular IMS debut in July 2012 during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard. More than 100 sports cars competed on the 13-turn, 2.534-mile IMS Grand Prix course on the same weekend that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series raced on the 2.5-mile IMS oval.

All four series also will race at the 2013 Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard. The 20th annual Crown Royal presents the "Your Hero's Name Here" 400 at the Brickyard for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is set for Sunday, July 28. The date for the Indiana 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race is tentatively set for Saturday, July 27 and will be confirmed soon when NASCAR releases the 2013 schedule for that series.

The Brickyard Grand Prix for the Rolex Sports Car Series again will serve as the finale for the North American Endurance Championship presented by VISITFLORIDA.com. This special three-race series for the Daytona Prototype and GT classes starts with the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 26-27 at Daytona International Speedway, continues with the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen on June 30 at Watkins Glen International and concludes at IMS.

Starworks Motorsport and Magnus Racing clinched the inaugural NAEC titles in the Daytona Prototype and GT classes, respectively, on July 27 at IMS.
