Dyson Racing won the American Le Mans Series title after

hree Dog Night once suggested one
was the loneliest number, and two
nearly as bad. On the surface, the
prospect of only two full-season LMP1
prototypes battling for the main class
championship in the 2011 American
Le Mans Series could have foreshadowed
a lonely season – if one car fell out, the
other won purely by default.
It’s a credit, then, to Dyson Racing
and Muscle Milk Aston Martin Racing
that no such lamentations needed to be
sung when describing their 2011 battle
for supremacy. The season-long struggle
ended with Poughkeepsie, N. Y.-based
Dyson securing its first ALMS title.
“That made it even sweeter – the fact
we had monumental races at every event,”
