IndyCar Ringers' at Petit Le Mans

Now that the IndyCar season's over, drivers are somewhat free to dabble in other arenas...

Newly crowned 2016 IndyCar champion Simon Pagenaud will spearhead a Quintet of Open Wheel Racing drivers participating in this weekend's season finale Petit Le Mans Sports Car race, Saturday October 1st.

As Pageantry' and RHR', aka Ryan Hunter-Reay will moonlight in separate Corvette's in the B-I-G BOYZ' "DP" (Daytona Prototype) category, along with Spencer Pigot entered in both of Mazda's top tier entries.

Scotty Dixon and le 'Hamburgular, nee SeaBass, aka Sebastain Bourdais will return with Chip Ganassi Racing's Ford GT's in the GTLM (Le Mans) category as endurance event co-drivers.

Dixon will join the No. 67 with regular season drivers Ryan Briscoe & Richard Westbrook trailing the No. 4 Corvette C7R tandem of Ollie' Gavin & Tommy Milner by 11-points for the class title. Although the Corvette lads hold the tie-breaker advantage with four wins to the Ford duo's three.

Meanwhile, My Homeboyz' Team Seattle will once again be campaigning their latest variant of the venerable Porsche 911 in the No. 23; But should rightly be overlooked by history being made in their GTD (Daytona) class.

As Denmark's Christina Nielsen, who leads the title chase comfortably, is set to become the first female ever to win a championship in IMSA history, by simply contesting the minimum 3hr driving requirement aboard her #63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488GT3!

So take that Milka-licious. Y'all know when thou Wanderin' Milka, nee Milka Duno shot to prominence by finishing runner-up in a Grand Am Sports Car race. Before puttin' a Bee in Queen Danica's IndyCar Bonnet; Hya!

Alas, for any of Y'all IndyCar Fanaticoes; Err Fans already Jonesin' for some more racing' action with some of our current crop 'O drivers. Look for the race being aired upon Fox Sports FS1 & FS2 channels. Whilst also believe it'll be available streamed live on
