PokerStars.com is now in the racing business.

The online poker site has extended a relationship with Aston Martin Racing following a successful partnership in March at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring race where the team recorded a double podium finish.

The new deal will see Aston Martin's two DBR9 race cars branded with PokerStars.com throughout the remainder of the American Le Mans Series, two events in the United Kingdom, and the world-renowned Le Mans 24-hour endurance race in France later this year.

The partnership will also involve both brands working together in a number of ways over the coming year, including the use of a fully-themed show car at public events like the World Series of Poker. The partnership will also offer players at PokerStars.com the chance to get involved at races across America and Europe.

Tomas Enge from the Czech Republic and Darren Turner from the UK will drive the green cars. Enge drives car number 007 and Turner drives 009.

The American Le Mans Series schedule is as follows: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lexington, Ohio, May 19-21; New England Grand Prix Race, Lakeville, Conn., June 29-July 1; Grand Prix of Utah, Salt Lake City, July 13-15; Grand Prix of Portland, Oregon, July 20-21; Generac 500 at Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wis., Aug. 17-20; Grand Prix of Mosport, Bowmanville, Ontario, Sept. 1-3; Petit Le Mans, Braselton, Ga., Sept. 27-30; Monterey Sports Car Championships, Monterey Calif., Oct. 19-21.

The races are shown on CBS Sports and the Speed Channel.
