Newly-Crowned IndyCar Champion Simon Pagenaud to Compete at Petit Le Mans

Simon Pagenaud, who has quite the history at Road Atlanta, was recently crowned IndyCar champion after a thrilling victory in the IndyCar season finale at Sonoma Raceway. Having spent many of his formative years as a race car driver in the American Le Mans Series and having turned many laps at Road Atlanta during those years, Pagenaud returns to the track for IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season finale.

Pagenaud already has a Petit Le Mans class win under his belt, after leading the Patrón Highcroft Racing team to the LMP2 victory at Road Atlanta in 2010. Now, he returns looking to claim overall victory at the famed 10-hour enduro in joining Eric Curran and Dane Cameron in the No. 31 Action Express Racing Corvette DP for the final race of the season. The No. 31 currently sits first in the Prototype point standings, but the sister Action Express Racing car of Christian Fittipaldi and Joao Barbosa lag by just one point.

Be here to cheer on the 2016 IndyCar champion and see if his experience at the track makes the difference for the No. 31 Action Express team at the 19th Annual Petit Le Mans presented by Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort!
