Champions in the Pirelli GT4 America SprintX and GT4 West divisions will be decided this weekend in the season-ending round at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

A total of 20 cars are on the entry list for the pair of 60-minute two-driver races held at the Nevada roval, with titles in SprintX Pro-Am, SprintX Am and West Am still up for grabs.

Stephen Cameron Racing’s Greg Liefooghe and Sean Quinlan head into the weekend with a four-point lead over nolasport’s Jason Hart and Matt Travis in the battle for SprintX Pro-Am championship honors.

The two teams have battled all season, with the BMW pairing of Liefooghe and Quinlan maintaining their slim advantage following the most recent round at Road America.  

The SprintX Am class, meanwhile, sees a larger margin for points leaders Preston Calvert and Matt Keegan, with a 40-point lead over Kris Wilson and John Allen, who are currently not entered for the event.

It will result in Calvert and Keegan clinching the title once official track activity begins.

While Harry Gottsacker and Jon Miller have already clinched the GT4 West Pro-Am title, Rearden Racing’s Vesko Kozarov and Jeff Burton enter the weekend with a 24-point margin over TRG’s Chris Bellomo and Kevin Woods.

Track action for SprintX and GT4 West competitors begins on Thursday with the first race set for Saturday at 5 p.m. local time.
