Brake issues, meanwhile, has seen the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP of Max Angelelli slip to 11th overall, following a pad change while under yellow.

Andrew Palmer, now aboard the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca FLM09, leads Prototype Challenge, running in fourth overall, ahead of the No. 11 RSR Racing entry of Chris Cumming.

Wolf Henzler made a pass on Richard Lietz on the most recent restart to take his No. 17 Team Falken Tire Porsche 911 RSR to the lead in GT Le Mans.

GT Daytona continues to be led by the No. 33 Riley Motorsports/TI Automotive Dodge Viper GT3-R of Ben Keating.
