IMSA 2014: Chevy Sportscar Classic at Belle Isle – Qualifying

IMSA 2014 Belle Isle Qualifying

Racing in Detroit is always a special thing – whether it’s Formula 1, IndyCar, or IMSA – and the track at Belle Isle is so beautiful and so exciting that you can almost (almost) forget that the city is crumbling under the roar of the engines.

This isn’t a blog about urban decay, however. What we care about is the racing, and this weekend’s IMSA Chevy Sportscar Classic at Belle Isle is shaping up to be a good one. The Chevy Corvette DP teams did Belle Isle sponsors Chevrolet proud, with Corvettes starting from 1st, 3rd, and 5th positions, Tequila Patrón-sponsored HPD Honda of Scott Sharp and Ryan Dalziel and Oak Racing’s Nissan-powered Morgan.

You can catch today’s IMSA race at Belle Isle on Fox Sports 1, with coverage starting at 1:30PM EST. This is how they’ll be lined up when the green flags fly.
