Action Express Racing leads 1-2 with the first half of the Motul Petit Le Mans completed, following several incidents throughout the race so far.

Dane Cameron is out front in the No. 31 Cadillac DPi-V.R while teammate Filipe Albuquerque is running in second. Early leader Tequila Patron ESM is third and eighth.

The No. 2 ESM Nissan Onroak DPi dropped back after an incident with the JDC-Miller Motorsports Oreca 07 Gibson which sent both cars into the gravel. Chris Miller was given a drive-through penalty for the contact.

This brought out the sixth full course caution of the race while the field was neutralized again soon after when GT Daytona champion-elect Christina Nielsen slowed on the back straight.

Her Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 was taken behind the pit wall with a broken axle.

Giancarlo Fisichella and the Risi Competizione Ferrari are back out in the GT Le Mans lead while Mark Wilkins heads the GTD field for Michael Shank Racing. 

Performance Tech Motorsports remains out front in Prototype Challenge by two laps.
