2004 American Le Mans Series season
Previous: 2003 Next: 2005

The 2004 American Le Mans Series season was the sixth season for the IMSA American Le Mans Series. It was a series for Le Mans Prototypes (LMP) and Grand Touring (GT) race cars divided into 4 classes: LMP1, LMP2, GTS, and GT. It began March 20, 2004 and ended October 16, 2004 after 9 races.

Schedule[edit]

Three circuits were added to the 2004 schedule, replacing three events which did not return from 2003. The sprint event at Road Atlanta along with Circuit Trois-Rivières and the Miami, Florida street circuit were removed, while Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Portland International Raceway both returned once again. These were joined by the addition of Lime Rock Park. The removal of Trois-Rivières rendered Mosport as the only race outside the United States.
