Dane Cameron and Ricky Taylor led an Acura sweep of the top two positions in the second and final practice prior to qualifying for Sunday’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.

Cameron kept the No. 60 Meyer Shank Racing Acura ARX-05 atop the time charts, thanks to a 1:30.451 lap time, which was more than two-tenths quicker than fellow Honda Performance Development-contracted driver Taylor.

The No. 31 Action Express Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R of Pipo Derani also made a late-session improvement to third, followed by Renger van der Zande in the No. 01 Chip Ganassi Racing Cadillac.

Oliver Jarvis completed the top-five in the No. 55 Mazda RT24-P.

LMP2 was paced by the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 Gibson of Mikkel Jensen while Felipe Fraga was quickest in LMP3 in his No. 74 Riley Motorsports Ligier JS P320 Nissan.

BMW rose to the front in GT Le Mans for the first time this weekend, thanks to a late flyer by Connor De Philippi in the No. 25 Team RLL BMW M8 GTE.

Kyle Kirkwood, meanwhile, kept the No. 14 Vasser Sullivan Racing Lexus RC F GT3 atop the time charts in GT Daytona.

The session was halted early on for an accident by the No. 11 WIN Autosport Oreca of Steven Thomas, who clobbered the barrier and collected the No. 9 Pfaff Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R of Zach Robichon in the process.

Both cars returned to the track after repairs were made.

Qualifying is scheduled to get underway at 11:50 a.m. ET.

RESULTS: Practice 2
