The Porsche Deluxe Carrera Cup North America has raced each of its three seasons at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). This is the first time the premier one-make race series in North America will race at the famed “Brickyard” road course alongside the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

In each of its two prior visits, Porsche Carrera Cup North America headlined at Porsche Sports Car Together Fest at the world’s most famous race course.

Joining IMSA’s Battle On the Bricks, the twin 40-minute races for the all-Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car series will act as rounds 11 and 12 of the 16-race title fight.

Riley Dickinson enters the final three race weekends of the 2023 race season focused on victory in the No. 53 Kellymoss Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car with seven race wins and six perfect race weekends (dual race wins, pole positions, and fastest race laps).

29 entries across the three classes – Pro, Pro-Am, and Am – will have their shot at the New Braunfels, Texas-resident when Porsche Carrera Cup North America travels to the 2.49-mile, 14-turn road course in Speedway, Indiana, September 15 – 17.


  • Special Place. Indianapolis is a special place to racers but for points leader Riley Dickinson, the Brickyard holds an even more special place in his heart. It is where the Texan earned his first career Porsche Carrera Cup North America victory. The win came in the second of two races held as part of Porsche Sports Car Together Fest in 2022. Dickinson had been a regular contender since joining the series as a teenager in 2021 but the September 4 Indy victory was his breakout moment.
  • Supporting Role. This weekend marks the final time the Porsche Carrera Cup North America will race with the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship this season. To date, the series has raced with IMSA three times – including the doubleheader with IndyCar at Long Beach. It ran as support to Formula 1 at Miami and NASCAR Xfinity at Road America. The remaining races will see it as the headliner during Porsche Rennsport Reunion 7 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, September 28 – October 1 and its season finale with Formula One at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) on October 20 – 22.
  • Legacy Tracks. Like Sebring, Watkins Glen International, and Road America, Indy is one of four tracks to host a Carrera Cup event each season (2021, ‘22 and now ’23).
  • Double-Time. Two Pro-Am class drivers will do double duty with Carrera Cup alums this weekend in Indianapolis. PJ Hyett (West Chicago, Illinois) will race the No. 23 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car for Kellymoss in Carrera Cup North America while sharing the AO Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R with 2021 Carrera Cup North America Champion Seb Priaulx (UK) in the GTD class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Alan Metni will also compete in both series. The resident of Austin, Texas, will field the No.99 for Kellymoss in the Pro-Am category for the two Carrera Cup rounds. He will share the No. 91 Kellymoss with Riley Porsche 911 GT3 R with 2021 and 2022 Carrera Cup North America runner-up Kay van Berlo (Netherlands) in the GTD class of the WeatherTech Championship.
  • Porsche customer competitors will also split their time between two support series. Kyle Washington (Indio, California) will also race in two championships this weekend. He will pilot the No. 32 GMG Racing Porsche in the Pro-Am category of Carrera Cup while joining Jeroen Bleekemolen (Netherlands) in the No. 32 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport in the GS class of the Michelin Pilot Challenge. Rearden Racing enters Porsche race cars for Jake Pedersen in both Carrera Cup (No. 85 in the Pro class) and the No. 21 Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport with co-driver fellow Utah-resident Vesko Kozarov in Michelin Pilot Challenge. NOLASPORT will also enter machines in both series.
  • Homefield Advantage. While Indianapolis is the “Racing Capital of the World”, surprisingly few drivers in Porsche Carrera Cup North America call the “Circle City” home. Sabré Cook was born in Grand Junction, Colorado, but now calls Indy homebase. Veteran open-wheeler Dan Clarke now lives in the Indiana capital. Several drivers and teams are based in bordering states. Sean Varwig is from Barrington, Illinois, while P.J. Hyett is from West Chicago. Kellymoss is based in nearby Wisconsin, while MDK Motorsports is in Columbus, Ohio, as is its owner and driver, Mark Kvamme. James and Michael McCann run their Porsche race cars from their McCann Racing shop in Canton, Ohio, while longtime Porsche specialist Wright Motorsports is from Batavia, Ohio.
