WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 23, 2024) – Robert Megennis and Dillon Machavern finished on the second step of the podium in The Esses 120 at the Glen with their BMW M4 GT4. Machavern qualified the No. 95 thirteenth in class but picked up five positions in the opening laps of the two-hour sprint race. The BMW continued to move forward and Megennis took over the charge to the front, leaping into podium position in the final laps and repeating their second place finish from 2023. 

Francis Selldorff rolled off the grid eighth in the 25-car GS field with the No. 96 BMW. He remained in the top 10 before Robby Foley took over driving duties, ultimately finishing in seventh.

In the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Foley brought the No. 96 BMW M4 GT3 home in sixth in the Six Hours of the Glen, a race that proved to be a challenge with changing weather and yellow flags. Patrick Gallagher started fifth in the 21-car GTD field. Jake Walker took over during a caution and moved quickly through the field once back to green flag racing, passing the car off from third position. Light rain started to fall on portions of the 3.4-mile road course at the halfway point, sending Foley into the pits for rain tires, only to quickly switch back to slicks. Racing was interrupted, again, by more cautions and a red flag when heavy rainfall moved in quickly, parking Gallagher in 13th with just over an hour left in the third Michelin Endurance Cup race. 

When racing resumed with rain tires back on, Foley recovered seven spots to bring the Belle Haven white-and-orange-liveried BMW into sixth, however moved up to fifth after Wright Racing failed to meet minimum drive time. The team remains second in GTD championship points behind race winners, Winward Racing.

The IMSA season continues north of the boarder at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park July 11-13 with both the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and Michelin Pilot Challenge.
