Tommy Milner paced warmup for this afternoon’s Northeast Grand Prix, while Ross Gunn topped the time charts in GT Daytona in an incident-filled session.

Milner reeled off a best lap of 50.429 in the No. 4 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R to edge out the No. 79 WeatherTech Racing Porsche 911 RSR-19 of Mathieu Jaminet by 0.210 seconds.

The 20-minute scheduled session came to an early end after an accident involving the No. 88 Team Hardpoint EBM Porsche 911 GT3 R of Katherine Legge and Zach Veach’s No. 12 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3, which made contact in Turn 1.

Legge’s Porsche spun into the tire barriers as a result, with the Lexus coming to a rest in the grass.

It came after the No. 19 Grasser Racing Team Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo of Misha Goikhberg spun and got stuck in the grass, requiring a tow that brought out the first red flag of the session.

Gunn’s 52.223-second lap time in the GTD pole-sitting The Heart of Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT3 was more than a tenth quicker than the No. 39 CarBahn with Peregrine Racing Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo, which was second in class on the time charts.

All 16 cars completed laps in the session.

The Northeast Grand Prix gets underway at 3:10 p.m. ET with live coverage on Trackpass on NBC Sports Gold and on IMSA Radio.
