    Might be the biggest week for sports car racing in the U.S. in years. MPC and the 1000 Miles on Friday, 12 Hours on Saturday. RACER reported ticket sales are up 40-50%, SC365 said 70% and that 200,000+ spectators are expected this week.

    Enfinger and Rhodes taken out by two different Mercedes in consecutive laps with a half-hour to go. Tough.

    Yeah, My picks did not do good in the GS/TC race. Trying to find an easy " live "
    live link for the 1000 mile race today. Having no luck. The one I found still wants a credit
    card even though they say they wont charge it. uh uh, right.....

    Please leave a link here for Fridays 1000 mile race if you have one.

    This might be the best bet outside of Motor Trend.

    Hmm, it works for me, but I think it's only available on YouTube and can't be embedded anywhere. I think there should be a few more available on reddit - /r/MotorsportsStreams

    Classic Florida.

    This was going to go to time before the race even started. Not sure why they bothered with laps/miles lol.

    Seven cars on the lead lap in DPi and six are Cadillacs. This whole 'strength of numbers' thing might push Mazda and Acura to make some customer cars available at some point...

    Bombarito made a mistake, such a rare sighting. That's just how Sebring is and the crossover is just unforgiving.

    I feel so bad for Mazda, its not even funny. Such a small group doing what they can, but man its unforgiving just everything seems to happen to them.

    Kyle Larson should race for Mazda to create the most gutwrenching duo ever.

    Yeah I thought it was hard enough to damage the suspension, looks to be good though. Those Cadillacs are damn near bulletproof though so it'll be a tough climb.

    I'm not sure for Mazda. They are not making any new Mazdaspeed products anytime soon. Acura would not surprise me, but too bad they have an A-Spec fvcking CUV....

    This sh!t is going to get wild. This brings Albuquerque and Rossi into play as well.

    Quick yellow... You mean VSC?

    Lol.

    quite a bit of time left actually.

    Like they're still going to split the classes so Albuquerque and Rossi will be right back in it too. Top 6 in GTLM are all on the same lap and top 8 in GTD.

    wow, they are winding the time down

    I don't know why Dixon isn't the closer in that car.

    Dunno, Briscoe would be my #2 driver. He's quick and maintains gaps very well. Dixon is easily the anchor for 67 car. They will remember this move for sure.
