Justin Marks has escaped injury following a heavy accident that brought Thursday’s Practice 2 to an early end at Sebring.

The No. 93 Michael Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3 made hard contact with the tire barriers after a reported brake failure entering Turn 13.

Marks was evaluated and released by IMSA medical, although the car has sustained significant front-end damage.

An Acura spokesperson indicated to Sportscar365 that while they don’t have a complete spare chassis on-site, they do have sufficient spares to replace the car’s front clip.

The team completed a front clip repair at Road America last year, following an accident by Katherine Legge.

MSR’s No. 93 Acura will miss night practice, with Marks required to complete laps in the session in order to be eligible for night-time driving in the race.

Marks is due to share driving duties of the No. 93 Acura with Lawson Aschenbach and Mario Farnbacher.
