After 14 years of racing, it all comes down to this. The 10 hour, 1000 mile, Petit Le Mans will be held Saturday at Road Atlanta, bringing the ALMS season and series to a close. (Thanks for the memories Dr. Panoz!)

In P1, 2013 Champions, Muscle Milk/Pickett Racing, with driver Lucas Luhr will face strong competition on Saturday. 2012 Petit Le Mans winners, Rebellion racing, who chose to sit out most of the 2013 season, will return to the track to defend last year’s win at Road Atlanta. Luhr is looking to capture his 50th ALMS career victory on Saturday.

In P2, The team and driver’s championships both look to be well within reach for Level 5 Motorsports. Extreme Speed Motorsports is still mathematically alive for the top spot in the championship standings; however both Level 5 cars would have to DNF for Extreme Speed to take the championship.

In PC, The championship has come down to the final race. CORE Autosport and PR1 Mathiasen Motorsports are tied for the class points lead going into Petit. BAR1 Motorsports is just seven points behind the leaders.

In GT, The championship has already gone to Corvette Racing, who have displayed amazing consistency all season, finishing no lower than third. BMW Team RLL and SRT Motorsports will be battling for second place in the points.

In GTC, Flying Lizard Motorsports has a narrow two point lead over Alex Job Racing. Look for these two veteran teams to bring their very best to the track on Saturday. TRG will be trying hard to knock NGT Motorsport out of third place in the point standings.
