Watkins Glen, NY (Wednesday, June 19, 2024) — Following two sprint rounds in the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the Paul Miller Racing team is ready to return to the series’ endurance racing roots with the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen in Watkins Glen, New York.

Watkins Glen was crucial to drivers’ Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow’s championship charge last year. Falling three laps down after an electrical issue, the Paul Miller Racing team fought back in the final stages of the race to not only get their laps back, but charge through the IMSA GTD field. Sellers would pass more than a dozen cars in the closing stages of the six-hour race to bring the No. 1 BMW M4 GT3 machine home in second place and preserve the team’s championship hopes.

Sellers and co-driver Madison Snow return to Watkins Glen International in 2024, now as part of the GTD Pro class. BMW M Works driver Neil Verhagen joins the duo for endurance races aboard the iHeartRadio-sponsored machine.

The No.1 Paul Miller Racing team currently sits fourth in the GTD Pro championship, following a podium in their class debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, a fourth-place finish at the 12 Hours of Sebring, and an impressive last-to-fifth charge on the streets of Detroit in early June.

In addition, the team are currently leaders in the Michelin Endurance Cup standings—of which the Watkins Glen event is a part of.

“Watkins Glen was a really pivotal race for us last year,” Paul Miller Racing team owner, Paul Miller, said.

“It’s really emblematic of the way this team can work together and keep pushing, even when the chips are down. It’s kind of wild to say that in a year like we had in 2023 with five race wins, a second-place finish was our biggest victory, but I think that the finish here in Watkins Glen is one we can all point to as being crucial to winning our championship and just a prime example of this team never quitting.

“Hopefully, we can replicate that podium result again this year—and do so without the preceding electrical issue—to get ourselves properly in the championship fight going into the second half of this season.”

The Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen from Watkins Glen, New York weekend kicks off on Friday, June 21st. You can watch the first three hours of Sunday’s six-hour race LIVE on USA Network beginning at 11 AM ET. Live flag-to-flag coverage of the event will be available on NBC Peacock.

Bryan Sellers
“Watkins Glen is a great event. That atmosphere is amazing, and it’s the perfect distance for an endurance race. I love going every year and seeing the crowds this race brings. We have had a rough couple of races and are really looking and hoping to make this a race where we can bounce back. It is never easy in this series with the level of competition in the GTD Pro class. Every win and podium is hard-fought against some of the best of the best. But I know this team excels in these situations and I’m hopeful we can get a good result and build momentum going into the second half of this season.”​

Madison Snow
“Racing Watkins Glen in the middle of the year is always a change of pace from the sprint races that surround it. Watkins is a classic track with such a rich racing history—it’s always fantastic to be back racing here. We have had success in the event over the years but never a win. This is one everyone wants, and hopefully, we will have enough to get it done.”

Neil Verhagen
“Another new car and track combination for myself! I’ve heard so many great things about the event so I’m really looking forward to racing at the Glen. It’s a very high-speed and technical race track. I’m excited to meet the fans at the track and hopefully come back with some trophies at the end of the weekend! I know Paul Miller Racing is going to give us a competitive car, so I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of our BMW M4 GT3 with Bryan and Madison.”
