The 2001 Leather Center Grand Prix of Texas was the opening round of the 2001 American Le Mans Series season. It took place at Texas Motor Speedway, Texas, on March 4, 2001.

This event is the only time in the history of the American Le Mans Series that the 12 Hours of Sebring was not the first race on the schedule. This race was also the last time the American Le Mans Series ran on a roval − a combined oval track and road course.
