Watkins Glen, New York. Porsche Penske Motorsport scored its third victory of the 2024 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship today at Watkins Glen International. The No. 7 factory Porsche 963 with drivers Dane Cameron (Huntersville, North Carolina) and Felipe Nasr (Brazil) fought everchanging weather conditions along with the 54-car field and the fast circuit in Watkins Glen, New York to score their second overall victory of the season – the first coming at the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona in January.
