IMSA has made a significant adjustment to its WeatherTech SportsCar Championship calendar with the addition of a second consecutive race at Daytona International Speedway, which will play host to the series as it returns to action in July.

The new Round 2 at Daytona, set for the Fourth of July weekend, replaces Watkins Glen International, which has been moved to October 2-4; the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen was originally planned for June 26-28 as Round 2 in the last IMSA schedule.

A trip north to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on July 5 has been removed from the latest WeatherTech Calendar in light of border crossing restrictions; it has been replaced by a July 17-18 visit to Sebring International Raceway for a standard-length race.

The new races at Daytona and Sebring will be run without spectators, with NBCSN carrying live coverage of the July 4 DIS round. IMSA’s Michelin Pilot Challenge series will make its return in July at Sebring
