Miami, Florida - Owner and driver for Level 5 Motorsports, Scott Tucker competes in American Le Mans, Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and Ferrari Challenge competition.

This talented and dedicated crew are pictured here following the team's win in the 2011 12 Hours of Sebring.

Moving into the LMP2 category for 2011, Scott Tucker and his Level 5 Motorsports organization wasted no time getting up to speed with their new prototypes. Tucker was part of the winning team in the 59th annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the opening round of the American Le Mans Series and new Intercontinental Le Mans Cup World Championship. One month later, Tucker was back in victory lane in the second round of the ALMS season at Long Beach before taking Level 5 to Europe for the 1000km of Spa and famed 24 Hours of Le Mans.

In a remarkable debut, Tucker and co-drivers Christophe Bouchut and Joao Barbosa earned a podium finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the highly competitive prototype division, with Tucker being the highest-placed American driver in the prestigious race.

Along with being a great payday, Tucker's third place result at Le Mans also marked a significant milestone in his racing career as he became one of only a few drivers to have achieved podiums in all of the major endurance races in the world. Rolex 24 at Daytona (2010, 3rd place), Twelve Hours of Sebring (2010, 2011, both class wins), 24 Hours of Le Mans (2011, 3rd place) and Petit Le Mans (2010, class win). Additionally, he recorded his 50th career win in early 2011, and scored a podium finish (3rd) at the Six Hours of Imola in ILMC competition.

When the 2011 season opened, Tucker and his Level 5 Motorsports team fielded two new Lola-Honda prototypes and moved into the LMP2 class in the American Le Mans Series. The team won the class victory in the Twelve Hours of Sebring. Due to a lack of competitors in LMP2 class of the American Le Mans Series, Level 5 concentrated on the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup rounds in Europe and Asia. The Level 5 team participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, earning an impressive podium finish. Tucker, and co-drivers Christophe Bouchut and Joo Barbosa raced the Level 5 Motorsports' Lola B11/80 Honda Coupe to a third-place finish in LMP2. It was Level 5's debut appearance in the historic race as a team.
