BRASELTON -- For teams, drivers and an entire racing series, it all comes down to Road Atlanta this weekend.

The 2013 title winners in all categories of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) will be determined and crowned at the 16th Annual Petit Le Mans in Braselton.

Participants travel to the IMSA Development Series' birthplace this weekend for the final two rounds of the 2013 campaign. The current IMSA headquarters is located just seven miles from the 2.54-mile, 12-turn Road Atlanta circuit.

Beyond championships and titles, history will also be made this week, as the ALMS will put on its final event, shifting to its newly merged form and title as the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship once the checkered flag drops on Saturday evening.

The event will feature three days of action, including practice sessions on Thursday and Friday and qualifying on Friday, followed by Saturday's main event.
