Scott Tucker Scores Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Championship Win

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

BRASELTON, Ga., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a week that has Scott Tucker slated to compete in a total of six different races, the Level 5 Motorsports driver got off to a strong start with a win in the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Championship on Thursday.  The win was Tucker's third straight in the Lites 2 class.

Tucker will be pulling double-duty in both the No. 33 and the No. 055 Microsoft Office 2010-sponsored HPD ARX-01g racecars on Saturday for Petit Le Mans — the famed 1,000-mile or 10-hour endurance race that marks the conclusion of the American Le Mans Series season.   He will also be tackling five support series races:  the Cooper Tire Prototype Lites double-header, two rounds of the IMSA GT3 Challenge by Yokohama series and Friday's SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am event with Level 5's Ferrari 458 Challenge car.  This makes Tucker the busiest driver in the paddock.

While he will have to juggle a packed schedule each day, the ultimate focus will be on delivering success on Saturday as Level 5 seeks to solidify its runner-up position in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup LMP2 championship standings.

Level 5, which is searching for back-to-back Petit Le Mans victories after their LMPC win at Road Atlanta last year, has already locked up this year's ALMS LMP2 drivers and teams titles to go with their 2010 accolades in LMPC, which included the inaugural drivers championship and Rookie-of-the-Year honors for Tucker.

Qualifying for the 14th annual Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda is scheduled for 2:35 p.m. ET on Friday, September 30 and will be available in the U.S. on ESPN3 or outside the U.S. on americanlemans.com. The 1,000-mile/10-hour endurance race is set for Saturday, Oct. 1. The race will air on ABC at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 2. Live coverage will be available in the U.S. on ESPN3 or outside the U.S. on americanlemans.com beginning at 11:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 1.
