    I love it as well. Weather is bad so far though, hopefully BMW can qualify well. They haven't had a pole yet but the cars do well no matter where they start. I think I will watch this one on speed tomorrow.

    BMW M3's Qualify at Back of the Pack for Lime Rock ALMS Race

    The Weather for the North East Gran Prix was very rainy during qualifying today. The M3's did not qualify well with the number 90 qualifying in last place and the number 92 in 9th place. The M3's have not been strong qualifiers through the entire ALMS series and it seems the rain exacerbated that. However, the M3's run very well during the races and BMW took over 1st place in the overall standings after the last race.

    Porsche took the pole and the second spot in qualifying with the GT3 RSR. Tune in to Speed tomorrow for the race or watch coverage on www.americanlemans.com at scoring.americanlemans.com .

    I always find myself some what pulling for Corvette Racing.

    They should have won 24hr Le Mans, if that pos Anthony Davidson driving for Peugeot didn't take out the vette that was leading GT2 by a large margin.

    This is a badass race guys, if you aren't watching you are missing out. The M3's are taking it to the Vette right now, they look fast, real fast.

    Less than an hour left, M3's fall to 3rd and 4th. Pit strategy has BMW only needing 1 stop to finish.

    BMW M3's Finish 2nd and 3rd at Lime Rock - Race Wrap-up

    The M3's ran an extremely tough race. Despite qualifying at the back of the back, the M3's charged to the front and challenged for the lead the entire race. The number 90 M3 driven by Joey Hand set the fastest lap in the class with a time of 55.943. The BMW's continue to get stronger and stronger as the season progresses.

    Some of the toughest racing was between the two M3's themselves, with teammates Bill Auberlin and Joey Hand going head to head. The M3's were not able to catch up to Patrick Long in the GT3 RSR. This is the second time now that Patrick Long has managed to hold off the M3's and take the win. By finishing 2nd and 3rd BMW will hold on to its manufacturer lead but is behind in the driver standings.

    The next race is Mid-Ohio, August 7th. The frequency of the races will much quicker now with only 4 races left in the season.

    Final Race Result:
