The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship heads to the Monterey Peninsula for a two-hour, 40-minute race.

“I think we’ve been so close all year long," Bourdais said after his seventh career pole. "The guys have done a really good job.

"The car was great. I’m really happy for everybody. As fun as it is to put these things on pole it doesn’t really mean a whole lot. I’ve got a great teammate in Renger, and I’ve got no doubts that if we keep our nose clean, we’ll be up top.”

Sunday's two-hour, 40-minute Motul Course de Monterey will be broadcast on NBC and Peacock at 3 p.m. ET.
