Who doesn't love sports car racing? Get yourself in the mood with some '90s IMSA GTP championship footage, and turn the volume all the way up.

IMSA was kind enough to upload the entire 1990 Mid-Ohio race on YouTube, and it features some of the coolest road racing cars out there. The Nissan team came into the race as the favorites, having won four of the previous eight races in the season. Drivers Geoff Brabham and Derek Daly took pole with their turbocharged V-6-powered Nissan GTP ZX-Turbo, but were followed close behind by the Porsche 962C driven by Hurley Haywood and James Weaver.

What followed was some seriously fun racing on one of America's greatest circuits:

Brabham and Daly were able to hold their lead position all the way to the finish, joined by their teammates Chip Robinson and Bob Earl in second place. Toyota rounded out the podium in third, while the Porsche 962 only managed to finish fifth. Brabham would go on to win his third straight IMSA title later in the season.
