Grand Am and ALMS to merge

Just heard about this last night.
Hope the NJ track isn't kicked off the scedule.

Makes sense. I would imagine that at least a couple of classes would be cut.

I am really excited about this. We should end up with an awesome series by the time it is done.

I am as excited as well! I just hope they don't have to many classes running at once..... This year AMLS was a little confusing to watch because of all the classes.

Sounds good, and should be good for the sport. As was mentioned in the comments to the article, keep the Nascar cookie-cutter mentality out of it.

I'm pretty confident that they will keep GT the same or keep it to the ACO rules for GTE so teams can compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Otherwise, teams like Corvette Racing would probably leave.

For Grand Am GT, I'm hoping they fully adopt the FIA GT3 rules (they already have several slightly modified GT3 cars in Grand Am GT) to get more variety and teams intersted. Maybe then the GT.R Camaros wouldn't be the tube frame silhouette cars they are now and we'd see a car that actually started out as a Camaro.

They'll probably have to speed up the Grand Am Daytona Prototypes because the ALMS GT cars are almost as fast.

Overall, as long as Corvette Racing and Stevenson Motorsports stay, I'll be happy
