Four different engine manufacturers ended the session in the top-four, with the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP of Joao Barbosa completing the top-five overall.

In GTD, Flying Lizard Motorsports’ Spencer Pumpelly led the way with a 1:33.756 lap time in this No. 45 Audi R8 LMS.

The No. 22 Alex Job Racing Porsche 911 GT America of Leh Keen was second, followed by Kuba Giermaziak’s NGT Motorsport Porsche in third.

The 90-minute session saw three red flags, two for debris and the third for the No. 18 Muehlner Motorsports Porsche of Sebastian Asch, who went into the barriers in Turn 1 with less than 5 minutes on the clock.
