Shanks Ligier Honda also tops night practice at Daytona

The No. 60 Michael Shank Racing Ligier JS P2 Honda completed a clean sweep of leading all four TUDOR United SportsCar Championship sessions on Thursday for the 53rd Rolex 24 at Daytona, as AJ Allmendinger led the one and a half hour night practice.

Allmendinger’s best time of 1:39.783 failed to eclipse either the practice or pole time set by teammate Ozz Negri, but nonetheless retained MSR’s perfect day of being the only car in the 1:39 bracket in each of the three practice sessions.

The No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP was second with the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP third.

RSR Racing led Prototype Challenge with Bruno Junqueira clocking a 1:44.107 in the No. 11 Oreca FLM09.
