        BMW continues its strong start to the ALMS season. After a 1-2 finish in the first race BMW has again finished in first. The second car finished in 7th place however. The competition is very strong as the second place Corvette set the lap record for the class. BMW is currently in first with the Corvette team in second place in the overall standings. The next race is the Northeast Grand Prix which will take place on July 9th.
