A field of 51 cars has been revealed for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race at Circuit of the Americas, with all four classes back in action for the final two races of the 2014 season.

The Prototype class field is reduced to 10 with the No. 1 Extreme Speed Motorsports HPD ARX-03b withdrawn and instead running in the FIA World Endurance Championship race, and the DeltaWing also not opting to make the trip to Austin.
