Yeah, sports car racing isn't too big around these parts -- except for us diehard race fans -- but if you're any type of race fan, you'll be riveted by the final laps of Sunday's American Le Mans Series race at Road America, where Klaus Graf edged Guy Smith by 0.112 seconds, the closest ever finish in ALMS history.
With four laps to go in the four hour race, Smith caught Klaus Graf in the LMP1 division and was doing seemingly everything he could to get by. And if that wasn't dramatic enough, remember, in sports car racing, there are multiple types of cars on the track, and the slower cars came into play as Smith was catching Graf. Just look at Smith's pass in the grass! It's already one of the craziest passes of the year and had he pulled off a pass for the win in the next corner or two, it would have been incredible.
