Level 5 Motorsports owner/driver Scott Tucker began racing in the Ferrari Challenge Series, founding his own team, Level 5 Motorsports, in 2008. Both Tucker and his organization advanced rapidly, entering American Le Mans Series competition in the LMPC class in 2010.
When Tucker and the Level 5 team entered the LMP2 class in 2011, they did so with three HPD-powered Lola chassis, campaigning one in the International Le Mans Challenge (now the World Endurance Championship) and two in the American Le Mans Series. The team made a seamless switch to the new HPD ARX-01g chassis mid- season, winning the final two races of the year with the new car.
Tucker won five times in seven starts to take the 2011 LMP2 drivers’ championship, along with regular co-driver Christophe Bouchut, while Level 5 won the teams’ title.
The winning continued in 2012, with Tucker racking up eight LMP2 wins in the new HPD ARX-03b Honda to claim his second consecutive drivers’ championship. It is the sixth title and fourth consecutive season HPD has won one or more ALMS sports-prototype championships, including LMP1 (Muscle Milk Pickett Racing) and LMP2 in 2012; LMP2 in 2011 (Level 5); LMP in 2010 (Highcroft Racing); and LMP1 (Highcroft Racing) and LMP2 in 2009 (Fernandez Racing).
