IMSA has released the entry list for next weekend’s Brickyard Grand Prix, the ninth round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

With all four classes in action, a total of 50 cars are set to take to the revised Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

ENTRY LIST: Indianapolis

No major changes are seen in the Prototype class, other than Chinese driver Ho-Pin Tung teaming with Gustavo Yacaman in OAK Racing’s Morgan-Nissan, which is coming off a dominant first victory in last weekend’s round at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

The DeltaWing, which was forced to withdraw due to chassis damage from a fire in Canada, is not entered, as originally scheduled, while the No. 31 Marsh Racing Corvette DP will return to action after Boris Said’s heavy crash.

Said, however, is not expected to drive due to his rib injuries, with his replacement to be announced soon.

In Prototype Challenge, IndyCar rising star Jack Hawksworth will make his TUDOR Championship debut, filling in for Alex Tagliani in the No. 08 RSR Racing Oreca FLM09, Tagliani was suspended by IMSA for one race following a practice accident at Watkins Glen.

John Martin, meanwhile, will make his second consecutive start in the No. 7 Starworks Motorsport entry, which James French is listed to drive with David Ostella in the No. 38 Performance Tech machine.

The ten-car GT Le Mans entry remains unchanged, while 19 GT Daytona cars are listed, with no notable changes, either.

The two-day event gets underway on Thursday July 24 with practice and qualifying, with the two-hour and 45-minute race taking the green flag Friday afternoon.
