A total of 22 cars are set for next weekend’s Bubba burger Sports Car Grand Prix at Long Beach, in the first sprint race of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season.

The two-class format will feature 14 Prototype entries and eight GT Le Mans machines.

ENTRY LIST: Long Beach

Wayne Taylor Racing will be seeking its fourth consecutive Long Beach victory, with Jordan Taylor and Renger van der Zande teaming up in the No. 10 Cadillac DPi-V.R in the 100-minute race, in the Prototype field.

While BAR1 Motorsports is again a no-show, the biggest absence is Spirit of Daytona Racing’s Cadillac DPi, which has been ruled out due to crash damage from Tristan Vautier’s race-ending accident in last month’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

GT Le Mans also features a reduced entry, as expected, with Risi Competizione not continuing with its Ferrari 488 GTE Evo entry following outings in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Sebring.

The third round of the WeatherTech Championship season is set for a 2:15 p.m. start on Sat. April 14.
