With 3 hours to run in the Rolex 24, the race in prototypes is fairly boring with the #5 Cadillac now almost 4 laps ahead of the #31 sister Action Express Cadillac. The only thing that could turn the borefest into an exciting finish is if the forecast rain hits the track before the finish.

Barbosa and his co-drivers Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi No. 5 Cadillac DPi-V.R have led overall for the better part of the last five hours.

Lois Duval has the #54 Oreca in third place over 4 laps behind the leader.

The #66 and #67 Ford GTs continue to parade around the track within seconds of each other with IndyCar drivers Sebastien Bourdais holding off Scott Dixon. The #3 Corvette runs third 43 seconds back and will need a phony NASCAR yellow to close the gap.

The #11 Lamborghini now tops GTD but the running order changes with pitstops.
