WATKINS GLEN, NY (June 28, 2015) Richard Westbrook and Michael Valiante captured their second consecutive TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen victory on a wet day in western New York.

With the win, the pair takes sole possession of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship points lead.

The No. 01 Ford EcoBoost DP of Scott Pruett and Joey Hand finished second after being forced to pit for fuel with less than thirty minutes remaining in the third round of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup.

Class winners in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen include the No. 17 Falken Tire Porsche 911 RSR of Bryan Sellers and Wolf Henzler (GTLM), No. 8 Starworks Motorsport ORECA FLM09 of Renger van der Zande, Mike Hedlund, and Alex Popow (PC), and the No. 93 Riley Motorsports Dodge Viper SRT of Al Carter, Cameron Lawrence, and Marc Goosens (GTD).

Despite the weather conditions, it was another record-setting Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen crowd at the facility that was voted the top NASCAR track by readers of USA Today, announced on Friday.

Next up for Watkins Glen International is the Finger Lakes Wine Festival presented by Yancey’s Fancy New York’s Artisan Cheese (July 10-12). Later in the summer, NASCAR returns August 6-9 for the Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen.
