Night has fallen at Sebring International Raceway and Memo Rojas has the lead in the No. 01 Chip Ganassi Racing Ford EcoBoost Riley, but any of eight or nine Prototype class cars could capture the overall win.
Joao Barbosa led at the nine-hour mark in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP, while each of the top eight Prototypes were on the same lap.
Eighth-hour leaders Extreme Speed Motorsports’ No. 2 HPD ARX-03b driven by Johannes van Overbeek made contact with Bryce Miller’s No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Audi R8 LMS on exit to Turn 17, with the ensuing cosmetic damage sending the ESM car to the pits.
The ninth full-course yellow flew with three hours and 36 minutes remaining as the left front tire became dislodged from the No. 009 TRG-AMR Aston Martin Vantage entering Turn 7.Later over the next couple hours there was a great battle as David Brabham in the No. 1 HPD ARX-03b got around Barbosa on the inside of Turn 7 for the lead. Just behind, Sage Karam in the No. 02 Chip Ganassi Racing Ford EcoBoost Riley got around Barbosa shortly thereafter
