Rojas and the No. 01 TELMEX/Target Chip Ganassi Racing BMW/Riley led by 5.969 seconds over Ryan Hunter-Reay in Velocity Worldwide's No. 9 Corvette DP.
Michael Shank Racing, looking for a repeat victory, ran third with Justin Wilson trailing by 24.359 seconds in the No. 60 Ford/Riley. The car made up seven laps in the overnight session thanks to timely wave-by periods and pit strategy.
