VARIETY: IT REALLY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE
A couple of tidbits heading to Mid-Ohio

There isn't much time to rest with the next round of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón set for less than two weeks time. The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge - at famed Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course - is the sixth race of the 2010 season and set for 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, August 7.

Mid-Ohio has a habit of producing a variety of overall winning cars. For example, five different manufacturers - Panoz, Audi, Lola, Porsche and Acura - have scored overall victories at Mid-Ohio in seven years. Three manufacturers have won each of the last three years.

Speaking of variety, here's another trivial piece of info... there has been a different pole-winning driver in each of the Series' five races to date this year - Marc Gene (Sebring), Adrian Fernandez (Long Beach), Guy Smith (Mazda Raceway), Simon Pagenaud (Utah) and David Brabham (Lime Rock). Those drivers represent four teams and four different cars.

What will this year's Mid-Ohio round hold in store? We'll all find out at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, August 7. Live race and qualifying video will be streamed online at americanlemans.com. Live radio coverage will be available on American Le Mans Radio presented by Porsche - a production of Radio Show Limited - as well as Sirius Channel 127 and XM Channel 242. The race will be broadcast at 12:30 p.m. ET on CBS Sports. Visit the Series' schedule page for ticket and accommodation information. Live Timing and Scoring, track schedule, entry list and much, much more will be available on Racehub at americanlemans.com.
