Race[edit]

The race was red flagged with around 10 minutes to go due to heavy rain conditions. Team Falken Tire had very good wet weather tires which earned them their first win in ALMS. Driver Wolf Henzler was fifth in class before the rain started falling and made his way up to first place in just one lap.
