Jesse Webb and Michai Stephens kept their Pirelli GT4 America Silver class championship hopes alive with victory in Sunday’s round at Sebring International Raceway.

Webb made his way into the lead of the race with 19 minutes to go, amid a three-way battle between the No. 999 Hanley Motorsports Toyota GR Supra GT4 EVO of Daniel Hanley and Kenton Koch’s No. 92 Random Vandals Racing BMW M4 GT4.

The three cars were locked in a thrilling battle for the lead for several laps, after an opening duel between pole-sitter Parker Thompson and Kenton Koch.

Thompson’s co-driver Hanley emerged from the mid-race pit stops and driver changes in the lead and stayed out front after Webb pressured Boehm for second for several laps, before it turning into a three-way battle.

Webb finished 1.642 seconds ahead of Boehm, with class championship leaders John Capestro-Dubets inheriting third after Hanley was forced to serve a drive-through penalty for having too fast of a pit stop.

Pro-Am class honors went to the No. 2 Flying Lizard Motorsports Aston Martin Vantage GT4 of Jason Bell and Michael Cooper, which finished fifth overall, behind the No. 88 STR38 Motorsports BMW pairing of Harry Gottsacker and Chandler Hull.

The Flying Lizard duo benefited from an apparent electrical issue for the No. 47 Nolasport Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport on Lap 5, which saw Hart briefly stop on track prior to pitting early for service.

The No. 72 Krugspeed Toyota of Anthony Geraci and Jaden Lander, meanwhile, picked up Am class honors.
