Dane Cameron is leading after the first hour of Petit Le Mans, as the No. 31 Action Express Racing Corvette DP inherited the lead in the first round of pit stops.

Polesitter Olivier Pla was leading until he pitted, but a slow stop for the Michael Shank Racing crew dropped the No. 60 Ligier JS P2 Honda down the order to seventh as John Pew took over.

Tristan Nunez is second for Mazda Motorsports, just over seven seconds behind the leader, while team-mate Joel Miller is third.

Kenton Koch is the leader for Performance Tech Motorsports in Prototype Challenge, having passed Robert Alon just before the hour mark.

Risi Competizione benefitted from the round of pit stops, and Giancarlo Fisichella is the current GT Le Mans leader. Richard Westbrook had led the class in his No. 67 Ford GT, but dropped to ninth after the stops.

Jeroen Bleekemolen pulled away to create an impressive lead in GT Daytona, and the Riley Motorsports crew maintained that in the stops. Ben Keating currently has a 25-second lead over Matt McMurry.
