Continental Grand Am TiresRacks upon racks of the Continental-supplied series tires could be found everywhere.
Turner Grand Am AlignmentSeveral teams were in alignment mode prior to qualifying, so it gave us a good look at the work the teams are able to do on the fly, and it shows just how much of a team effort racing at this level can be.  This TMS car gave us a great look at how the wing uprights, tied into the frame, of course, are also used as support for the alignment jigs.

Grand Am DP NakedA row of DP cars sleeping naked.  The perfect chance to be a race car peeping Tom.  The extreme level of preparation and fabrication on these cars is breathtaking.  Look at that carbon undertray and how it’s tied into the body. It makes your heart skip a beat, doesn’t it?
