2013 will go down as a historic year in motorsport as the landscape of American sportscar changes.  After 14 years of competition, the American Le Mans Series will join with the Rolex Grand Am to make the Tudor United Sports Car Championship.

The final race was, appropriately enough the same as the first – Petit Le Mans.  It was taken out by a European interloper – Rebellion Racing with their Lola Toyota package.

The guys at the ALMS were kind enough to release the final checkered flag of the last race – a special moment.  So on this, the last day of the 2013 year, we look back on that emotional race and the checkered flag moment.
