Dinan Looks to Continue Dominant 2020 at Brickyard

The Pirelli GT4 Sprint season has been dominated by two Michaels this season. In the Am division, Michael Dinan secured the division driver's championship at COTA and much like Cooper in the Pro division, will look to cap off what has been an incredible 2020.
