12:34 - Despite leading in their class only one hour ago, the #11 LMP2 with Steven Thomas behind the wheel has fallen to fifth.

11:43 -


11:36 - For the first (and certainly not the last) time this race, the GTPs have caught the GTD Pro and GTD cars. Lapped traffic at a track as narrow as The Glen will prove challenging.

11:20 - As for the LMP2 class, Hyett still leads. In GTD, Thompson also holds the lead from pole.


11:18 - The #18 hasn't gotten the car refired. Their perfect record this season is over in the LMP2 class.


11:17 - YELLOW FLAG


11:15 - CRASH! The #18 goes around in the LMP2 class. There is damage but minimal


11:15 - The #85 Porsche piloted by Hanson is flying currently. He's moved up to second
