I will never forget my first car race experience that I participated in 2 years ago when I first launched my blog. I was selected to cover the Long Beach Grand Prix and seeing all of the cars in the races was an “adrenaline” overload that I will never forget. I enjoyed that experience like a kid loves candy in a candy store. It’s a man’s dream to own as many cars as possible and seeing all of the different models at the race was amazing. It was also a bonding experience for me as I first began to be introduced to the world of blogging and made some lasting friendships there.


The fun part about covering the race was that I was able to get close with the whole process that goes on days leading up to the race day. As soon, as I arrived to the event I was introduced to the cars that are driven and was able to meet some of the drivers. They are pretty sick vehicles inside and out. Then I walked over to the pit area where it was extremely loud. It was in the pit area where I was able to see the qualifying runs for drivers and I was able to understand how the entire world of racing works. Now that was fun! Not to mention all the amazing food trucks that were present because that only made the event 10 times better.  I mean any event with real food is tons of fun! IMG_6415


It’s at these types of events that one will see Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Acuras, Porsches, BMWs, Audis, Lexus and Mercedes all together. It will never happen in other situations. Admiring the power of the cars is always a kick for a great time.


My experience at my last race was a great experience that every time that I can I will get myself to go watch live or at least see on television or online because it’s a sport that I’ve learned to be all over. Such is the case with International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) Racing, which actually takes place this upcoming weekend (March 15-March 18). Have you heard of the IMSA WeatherTech Championship Series Racing of Sebring?

If you have not I will give you the rundown. IMSA Racing is all about high-tech, race cars from the world’s top auto makers. It’s known that they have the best parts of F1, NASCAR, and Indy Car racing all in one place. IMSA has exciting racetracks and historic events like the 12 hours of Sebring. You can watch along with us from the comfort of your home on Fox Sports 1 from 12:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Or you can also tune in for the entire race broadcast on Fox Sports Go 10:30am- 11:00pm.

IMSA is North America’s flagship sports car racing platform that has been in this business for more than 40 years. In 2013, the American Le Mans Series and Rolex Sports Car Series merged together to form the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship under the IMSA. After just three seasons post-merger, the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship has become one of the most exciting racing series. Now, for season four, massive changes have been introduced along with more teams and carmakers joining the championship. The biggest news for this year was Cadillac’s return to endurance racing after an absence of 14 years.

So on race day I won’t be able to be live at the event, but be certain that I will be watching online with my scrumptious burger on the side to make me feel as I am in Sebring, FL. I love a good meaty burger while I watch sporting events and this won’t be the exception.


For more information, you can simply click here or download IMSA’s smartphone app which also provides live video, timing and scoring, and radio. And make sure to check out IMSA on Facebook too.
