VOICES OF PETIT: DARREN LAW

Thirteen drivers who are entered for the 10th running of Petit Le Mans also were in the field for the 1998 race at Road Atlanta. Flying Lizard Motorsports' Darren Law was one of those. One of the most recognizable American drivers in the American Le Mans Series paddock, Law will compete for at Petit Le Mans for the seventh time with a best class finish of second in the inaugural 1998 race. He will team with Seth Neiman and Lonnie Pechnik as he did in 2006.

Where it all started: "That event has turned into one of the biggest races on our calendar. I love going back there. I raced in the inaugural event when it started and it has grown so big. The track is great to drive, and so are the fans. It's a huge program and I love going back there."

What has changed and what hasn't: "The competition is just as tough. The biggest thing I've seen change over the years is the atmosphere of the event. It's so huge with the amount of people. It has just gotten bigger and bigger and become more enjoyable for everyone."

The 10th running of Petit Le Mans, the annual 1,000-mile/10-hour endurance classic at Road Atlanta, is set for 11:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, October 6. SPEED will provide live coverage from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 6:30 to 10 p.m. American Le Mans Radio and IMSA's Live Timing and Scoring will be available at www.americanlemans.com.
