Pipo Derani recorded the third quickest time in the No. 31 Action Express Racing Cadillac.

Other class pace-setters included Ryan Dalziel (Era Motorsport/LMP2), Matt Campbell (WeatherTech Racing/GTLM) and Bill Auberlen (Turner Motorsport/GTD).

No incidents were reported over the course of the 20-minute session.
