With many teams just getting back to the USofA from Le Mans, it’s a quick turn around for the 2015 episode of the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen. This is also round 3 of the Tequila Patón North Endurance Cup.

Now, I should be talking about what happened at qualifying on Saturday. My take on how the “Balance of Performance” is working out and what tweaks IMSA has made. How the Daytona Prototype cars are still a bit too fast and how the P2 cars seem to be pushed to the back. How great the racing is in GTLM and in a surprise for me, how I’m starting to enjoy PC racing.

BUT, The Glen being “The GLEN”, rain..rain..and MORE rain. So much so, IMSA canceled qualifying.

So, the starting grid for today’s race will be based on team points with the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype will starting from pole. The No. 54 CORE Autosport Oreca FLM09 will lead PC filed. In GTLM, Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia in Corvette Racing’s No. 3 Corvette C7.R will lead in their class. Lastly, No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Audi R8 will lead GTD class.

How to watch the race?

Easiest thing is head over to IMSA’s website for the various ways to watch the 6 hours of the race. Green flag drops at 10am ET this morning.

And of course, the ever handy spotters guide.
