2006 Grand-Am Cup Series Schedule Released

ALTON, Va. (October 8, 2005) -- Officials from the Grand American Road Racing Association released the 2006 Grand-Am Cup Series schedule of events last night at the Awards Celebration following yesterday's season-ending VIR 200 at Virginia International Raceway.

Highlights of the 10-race calendar for the Grand-Am Cup Series GS and ST classes include a return to Lime Rock Park on its traditional Memorial Day Weekend event, a debut race at the new Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City on Labor Day weekend and the first big endurance race in Grand-Am Cup Series history to end the season here at VIR. The Virginia endurance race will be either 12 or 24 hours in length with the final distance to be determined after a survey of series teams.

Returning venues include the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Phoenix International Raceway, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Barber Motorsports Park and Trois-Rivieres, in addition to VIR.

Nine races were announced and a 10th and final event will be added in the near future with a return visit to Homestead-Miami Speedway a likely stop. A race in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic -- where the Grand-Am Cup Series made its international debut this season -- is currently not on the schedule.
