Michael Shank Racing’s Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda is over, following a heavy crash by John Pew in the fourth hour of the rain-soaked race.

Pew lost control of the No. 60 Ligier JS P2 Honda at the Esses to bring out the sixth full-course caution.

It marked the team’s third accident of the weekend, and second of the day, following an ironman job by the Ohio-based team, and a number of other competitors, to rebuild the car following Pew’s first crash in Thursday night practice.

Up front, Dane Cameron continues to lead in the No. 31 Action Express Racing Corvette DP, with Patrick Pilet taking over control of the GT Le Mans class.
