Both CTSCC classes are eligible for per-event payments for first, second and third finishing positions as well as a year-end payout for team or driver titles. The season takes the green flag on Friday, January 24th with the BMW Performance 200 as drivers from all over the world assemble at the Daytona International Speedway for the 52nd Annual Rolex 24 at Daytona weekend. TUSCC BMW teams in the GTD class are eligible for the program.

GTD: 1st-$5000.00, 2nd -$4000.00, 3rd - $3000.00 Champion - $7500.00
GS: 1st - $4000.00, 2nd - $3000.00, 3rd - $2000.00 Champion - $5000.00
ST: 1st - $4000.00, 2nd - $3000.00, 3rd - $2000.00 Champion - $5000.00

As an added bonus, the top-finishing BMW teams in 2014 in these three classes will be awarded the use of two BMW vehicles for the 2015 calendar year. On Wednesday of race week Gordon McDonnell, BMWNA Motorsport Manager, made the key presentation to the top-finishing BMW teams of the 2013 CTSCC and GRAND-AM seasons. Will Turner of Turner Motorsport (GT); Michael Harvey of Fall-Line Motorsports (GS) and Keith Burton of Burton Racing (ST) received keys to an Ultimate Driving Machine they had chosen.

“We are grateful that a large number of privateers have chosen The Ultimate Driving Machine to compete this year in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge and we want to make sure they are rewarded for their success,” said Gordon McDonnell, BMWNA Motorsport Manager. “Adding the street cars to our program was just an extra way we could show our appreciation for the top finishing BMW team. We’re also excited about having our first customer car in GTD with the Turner Motorsports Z4 GTD so it’s only natural that the GTD class be included in our contingency program.”

The BMW Performance 200 takes the green flag at 1:45 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24th. The 52nd annual Rolex 24 at Daytona starts at 2:10 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25th with FOX Sports 1 covering the first two hours of the race live. A total of 15 hours of the race will be broadcast on FOX Sports channels.
