If you haven't been watching the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup this year, you've been missing out. Thanks to some fantastic driving and close racing, there are currently there are no less than six (!) possible contenders for the title, and it'll all come down to today's double-header event at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca.

Mazda will be streaming both races live on MazdaMotorsports.com. Afterwards, they'll be uploaded in-full to Mazda USA's YouTube channel. The first race starts at 2:30 PM eastern, and the second begins at 8:55 PM eastern. If you need to catch up on the season, Mazda has a playlist on YouTube packed with all of this year's previous races.

The three front-runners—Bryan Ortiz, Selin Rollan, and Robert Stout—are all within 24 points of each other in the championship, meaning these two races will likely mean a championship for one of them. Following closely behind (and still mathematically eligible to win the title) are 15-year old Robert Noaker, former Rookie of the Year Michael Carter, and Drake Kemper.

The winner of the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup will receive a scholarship worth $200,000 to advance their racing career. The 2019 Rookie of the Year will receive $75,000. Don't miss it.
