The No. 4 ANSA Motorsports entry of Kiko Porto ended up third overall and second in Pro, followed by John Capestro-Dubets, who made a late session improvement in Practice 2 to put his No. 46 Precision Performance Motorsports Lamborghini in fourth.

Alexandre Premat completed the top-five overall in the No. 70 Forte Racing Lamborghini, ahead of defending Pro class champion Danny Formal in the No. 1 Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti entry.

The No. 98 Flying Lizard Lamborghini of Sam Shi led the Am class while LB Cup was paced by Rocky T Bolduc in the No. 99 Topp Racing machine.
