Jordan Taylor led the way for Wayne Taylor Racing in the Friday’s second IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship practice session at Road America, setting the quickest lap of the weekend so far.

Taylor’s 1:52.402 lap in the No. 10 Cadillac DPi-V.R was the quickest of the session by 0.353 seconds.

Oliver Jarvis’ best lap from Practice 1 earlier in the day was still good enough for the second best time overall on the day in the No. 77 Mazda RT24-P for Mazda Team Joest.

Juan Pablo Montoya’s best lap from Practice 2 was third quickest for Acura Team Penske, while Robert Alon ended up fourth fastest overall in the No. 85 JDC-Miller Motorsports Oreca 07 Gibson.

The No. 22 ESM Nissan Onroak DPi did not take part in the afternoon session after suffering a major fire in the the opening moment of Practice 1 with Pipo Derani at the controls. 

The team expects to be back on track tomorrow. 

Ford’s Mueller Leads GTLM

Dirk Mueller set the pace in GT Le Mans in the No. 66 Ford GT for Chip Ganassi Racing, with Connor De Phillippi just 0.079 seconds behind in the No. 25 Team RLL BMW M8 GTLM.

Richard Westbrook made it two Fords in the top-three in class in the No. 67 entry.

After clocking the best time in class in opening practice, Andy Lally showed well one again in the incredibly tight GT Daytona class, setting the fastest lap in the No. 44 Magnus Racing Audi R8 LMS.

The top four in class were separated by a mere 0.086 seconds with Patrick Lindsey, Kyle Marcelli, and Alessandro Pier Guidi taking positions two, three, and four for Park Place Motorsports, 3GT Racing, and Scuderia Corsa, respectively.

Practice 3 is scheduled for 8:55 a.m. CDT.
