    The BMW driving by Dirk Mueller is currently in 1st place with 2 hours left.

    The two Ferrari F430's are in 2nd and 3rd and following very closely.

    The other BMW had a nasty wreck, more details to come.

    M3's fight back to 2nd and 3rd place! This is going to be close, they are trailing the 911 GT3 RSR that has somehow made it to the front.

    BMW finishes second at Laguna Seca ALMS Race

    This was a very tough fought battle seeing several lead changes. The number 90 BMW driven by Dirk Mueller and Joey Hand finished in second place and also had the fastest lap of the day for the class at 1:23.714 which was done by Dirk Mueller.

    The back in forth between Patrick Long in the GT3 RSR and Joey Hand in the M3 was incredible. With 8 minutes to spare Patrick Long took the lead. It was a battle down to the wire.

    The number 92 BMW was in third place with a half hour to go but Tommy Milner got penalized and lost tremendous position to the other cars. He ended up finishing toward the back of the pack.

    BMW remains in strong contention for the manufacturer and driver championship remaining in the top 3 and we are not even at the halfway point.
