When you think of places associated with Lamborghini, what comes to mind? Sant'Agata, obviously. Monaco? Los Angeles? Hong Kong? How about Kansas? While the king of flyover states might not be the first place you'd imagine a squadron of race-tuned Lamborghinis running, the state is home to Kansas Speedway, a tri-oval that, like Daytona, has an internal road course, allowing drivers to run on the banking and on the infield.

Lamborghini brought its Super Trofeo North America series to the track to give the locals a taste of what high-performance Italian racers are capable of, and to be entirely honest, the racing looked pretty entertaining. The one-make racing series focuses on gentleman drivers in identical cars, and is running its first season on the North American continent, after starting in Europe and expanding to Asia. It's mainly a support race for Grand-Am, the American Le Mans Series and Indy Car races. Take a look below for the footage from the Kansas event.

      And no one is in the stands because. . . it's Kansas. Granted, I'm only looking at the first picture (didn't watch the video). I really don't mind Kansas--I just think this is rather odd. It's like Thunder from Down Under visiting Salt Lake City.

        Was Aug 16-17 running with Grand-Am and Continental. Must be a slow morning for AB to be posting about this a month late.

      An awesome story and video tainted by STUPID commentary from a conceited a**hole. That's putting it mildly.

      In related news, the Super Trofeo Series racers and their teams have broken a record for the largest group of people voluntarily travelling to Kansas since the Union army spent an evening there in 1865
