        BMW gets the victory at Road America. It was a tough fought race with the number 90 BMW driven by Dirk Mueller pulling out the victory. The number 92 BMW unfortunately was taken out of the race when it hit the wall on the back straight. Coming in second was Patrick Long who continues to be the nemesis for the BMW team in his 911 GT3 RSR. BMW should now be first overall in the manufacturer standings with only two races remaining.

        Ah, he tapped him and next thing you know, aerodynamics take over and get the car spinning. I think that rear spoiler piece that came off the bottom of the LMPC did it.
