The 3rd full course caution of the race was just coming to an end at the 8-Hour mark of the Rolex 24 with Oliver Jarvis leading in the #77 Mazda but as the green flew Scott Dixon took over the lead in the #10 Cadillac and the Wayne Taylor Cadillac, which won last year appears to have the legs on everyone again this year.

Juan Montoya runs 3rd in the #6 Penske Acura while the #31 Cadillac driven by Felipe Nasr and the #5 Cadillac driven by Sebastien Bourdais round out the top-5.

Alexander Rossi brought the #7 Penske Acura up from 33rd to 19th before stepping out of the car, but they are still 22 laps behind the leader with zero chance to win.

There is no change at the top of LMP2 with the #52 Oreca still leading.

The #24 BMW with Agusto Farfus at the wheel continues to hold off the #912 and #911 Porsches, but the Porsche look ready to make the pass.

GTD is still a battle between the #48 Lambo and the #9 Porsche
