The No.52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA FLM09 took the PC class lead with only 20 minutes left in the race.

The dramatic finish for the Prototype Challenge class played out with 20 minutes left in the race as Colin Braun in the CORE Autosport ORECA FLM09 held a comfortable one-lap lead over Tom Kimber-Smith in the No.52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports ORECA FLM09. After contact with another car, Braun went off in the International Horseshoe and Kimber-Smith was able to take the lead.
Braun was able to get back on track, but his car’s rear suspension broke exiting the bus stop chicane, sending him into the wall. The car caught fire, but Braun escaped uninjured. The PC class drama ended with 20 minutes remaining as Kimber-Smith cruised home to a one-lap victory over the No. 16 BAR1 Motorsports ORECA FLM09.
