Scott Pruett's drive to a record-tying fifth overall victory in the 51st Rolex 24 at Daytona continued with three hours left Sunday afternoon. Pruett went from fifth place in the No. 01 TELMEX/Target Chip Ganassi Racing BMW Riley following a restart back to the race lead in just eight minutes. The overall polesitter, who pitted for a brake change during the most recent full-course caution, got under Ryan Hunter-Reay at the entry to NASCAR Turn 1 to return to the point again.
Hunter-Reay, in the No. 10 Velocity Worldwide Corvette DP, held second place by 0.106 second over Mike Rockenfeller in Action Express Racing's No. 9 Corvette DP.
Andy Lally regained the GT lead for Magnus Racing during the race restart in the pole-sitting No. 44 Porsche GT3 and led Mark Wilkins in the No. 69 AIM Motorsport Team FXDD Ferrari 458. Alessandro Balzan ran third for Scuderia Corse Michelotto in the No. 63 Ferrari. The top seven cars in class remained on the lead lap.
Shane Lewis was back in the GX-leading No. 16 Porsche Cayman from Napleton Racing. Lewis, who won the class pole position, led by seven laps over James Clay in the No. 22 Porsche.
