Begun in 1995, BMW M3s have raced to more than 53 wins in 108 races entered, primarily as a result of the efforts of BMW NA-supported BMW Team PTG.
BMW Team PTG competed in the American Le Mans Series from 1999 through 2001, as well as the 2003 Petit Le Mans. BMW Team PTG will provide technical support and BMW will enhance its privateer contingency program to support this effort.

The event will be televised live on The Today Show on NBC, where hosts Anne Curry and Al Roker will join in the festivities.
