IMSA enjoying strong and steady start to sports car season

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The way Scott Atherton views it, things couldn't be much better for IMSA right now.

The CEO of the sports car series is enjoying stability in the first year of a long-term entitlement partner in WeatherTech, which is aggressive in its promotion of IMSA. The series has 41 full entrants this year, has developed the GT Le Mans class into the most competitive of its type in the world and has seven manufacturers in the GT Daytona class with Lexus set to come on board as an eighth brand later this year.

In all, IMSA has 13 official automotive partnerships.
