    The Chrysler Group and the folks at the American LeMans
    Series (ALMS) announced this morning that the Grand Prix of Baltimore will officially
    be presented by the SRT brand while the ALMS race at that event will be named
    the Baltimore Sports Car Challenge Presented by SRT.

    In addition to having “presented by” added to the Grand Prix
    of Baltimore and the ALMS Baltimore Sports Car Challenge, the 2013 SRT Viper
    GTS and the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will serve as the pace vehicles for
    all of the major races held at the Baltimore Inner Harbor race course on August
    31st, September 1st and September 2nd.  The entire Grand Prix of Baltimore Presented
    by SRT includes the IZOD IndyCar Series, the Firestone Indy Lights, the USF2000
    National Championship and the Star Mazda Championship in addition to the
    American LeMans Series so the SRT name will be reaching a wide spread of race
    fans during that weekend.

    Of course, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS-R race teams will be in
    the GT Class field of the ALMS Baltimore Sports Car Challenge Presented by SRT
    with the #91 Forza Motorsport 4 Viper and the #93 Pennzoil Ultra Viper looking
    to improve their level of competition as they prepare for a full schedule in
    2013.  On top of the naming rights, the
    pace vehicles and the two race teams, the SRT brand will be prominently
    displayed around the Baltimore Inner Harbor race course as well as highlights
    during the various telecasts.

    The Baltimore Sports Car Challenge Presented by SRT takes
    place is scheduled to begin on Saturday September 1st at 4:30pm EST
    with live coverage beginning on ESPN3 at 4:15pm.  Those who don’t have access to ESPN3 can
    catch the action from the SRT sponsored race on Sunday September 2nd
    at noon.  Hopefully, the Viper teams will
    have some more experience under their belts by that time so that they can give
    the GT Class front runners a run for their money in the race that sports their
    company name.
