Racing at COTA for the first time since 2017, the Lamborghini series will run two 45-minute practice sessions on Friday and two 50-minute races – the first Saturday evening and then another Sunday afternoon.

“The circuit remains a favorite with our teams and drivers, and we are particularly excited to be returning on such a special weekend to coincide with the inaugural visit of the NASCAR Cup Series. I know our Texas Dealers are already planning their activations for what will be a fantastic weekend of on-track action.”
