The once-leading No. 31 Action Express Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R has hit trouble in the eighth hour of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, with a trip to the garage.
Mike Conway wheeled the Cadillac behind the wall to replace a right-front toe-link, in what’s believed to be residual damage from Eric Curran’s contact with a Prototype Challenge car in the fifth hour.
The repairs cost Conway upwards of 10 minutes and has dropped the Cadillac to 8th overall.
It’s elevated the No. 22 Tequila Patron ESM Nissan Onroak DPi of Bruno Senna to third, behind the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac, now back in the controls of Jeff Gordon.
Action Express Racing’s Filipe Albuquerque continues to lead overall, with Toni Vilander now out front in GT Le Mans, ahead of the pair of Porsche 911 RSRs.
Performance Tech (Prototype Challenge) and Land Motorsport (GT Daytona) lead their respective classes, with the rain beginning to ease up.
