News - Road Atlan...

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – One day after the official entry list was unveiled for the 20th Anniversary Motul Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, an additional entry came in and it’s a big one.

Team Penske is bringing an ORECA LM P2 machine for a trio of IndyCar superstars: Juan Pablo Montoya, Helio Castroneves and Simon Pagenaud. Between the three of them, they own five Indianapolis 500 victories and two IndyCar championships.

The Motul Petit Le Mans will provide a “sneak preview” of sorts for Team Penske, as the team re-enters full-time sports car competition with a two-car IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship program with a pair of new Acura DPi race cars next season.

The stars will be out in full force next week when the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship fires the engines for the final time this season at Road Atlanta for the 20th Anniversary Motul Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Live FOX Sports coverage of the race begins at 10:30 a.m. ET on FS1 with live streaming throughout the race available on FSGO with FS1 authentication. FS2 will have two Motul Petit Le Mans live television windows, the first from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET and the second from 5 p.m. through the checkered flag and post-race activities ending at 9:30 p.m. ET.

BRASELTON, Ga. (Sept. 27, 2017) –  Road Atlanta has a new long-term partner in FOX Factory Holding Corp. (FOX), a ride dynamics company, as announced by track officials.
