WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – Felipe Nasr, Dane Cameron and the No. 7 Porsche Penske Motorsport Porsche 963 survived a wet and unpredictable Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen on Sunday, winning the race at Watkins Glen International.

The six-hour race on the 3.4-mile, 11-turn permanent road course was halted by a red flag for nearly 40 minutes following heavy rain that left the circuit undrivable. Green-flag racing resumed with just 16 minutes remaining, and Nasr made quick work of it. He passed leader Louis Deletraz in the No. 40 Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Acura ARX-06 heading into Turn 1 on the restart and went on to win by 0.749 seconds over Renger van der Zande in the No. 01 Cadillac Racing Cadillac V-Series.R.

The win is the second of the season for Nasr, Cameron and the No. 7 Porsche, following their victory in the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona. They are the first team to become a repeat winner this season in the Grand Touring Prototype (GTP) class, with the first five races of the season each won by a different car. Cameron earned his 17th career IMSA top-tier series win and Nasr his 10th. It’s also win No. 38 for Team Penske.

Rain visited the track on several occasions during the race, the heaviest with just more than 100 minutes to go, forcing a full-course caution that led to the red-flag stoppage with 81 minutes left. The race clock continued ticking during the stoppage, with the cars returning to the track with 41 minutes remaining and the final green flag waving 25 minutes later.

Other class winners in the race were the No. 88 Richard Mille AF Corse ORECA LMP2 07 with co-drivers Luis Perez Companc, Nicklas Nielsen and Lilou Wadoux Ducellier in Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2), the No. 23 Heart of Racing Team Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Evo with co-drivers Ross Gunn and Alex Riberas in GT Daytona Pro (GTD PRO) and the No. 57 Winward Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 with co-drivers Russell Ward, Philip Ellis and Indy Dontje in GT Daytona (GTD).

The WeatherTech Championship returns to action with the LMP2, GTD PRO and GTD classes racing in the Chevrolet Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on Sunday, July 13.
