Sitting here watching the live night coverage online, 14 hours to go, and there are currently 4x GTLM cars ahead of all of the prototype challenge cars.  Gotta say I wasn't expecting to see that.  It appears the PC cars are spending about 50% more time in the pits than the GTLM cars.

Concerning the two injured drivers, via ESPN.com: "IMSA officials said both drivers were awake and communicating, but gave no other information about their conditions"

I like how the pace car ninjas in and out in places other than pit lane. It joins the track at the exit of 3 and it leaves out the end of the bus stop. Ninja

That's a tough call. I've been there and I don't usually try to force the issue on the outside like that because odds are you'll lose, and to make that angle from the outside you'd have to cut down on to the car on the left.

You can go side by side through there but it's waaay slow.

I can't penalize the Ferrari there.

Neat.

Last years' WEC season is up, courtesy some guy shown in the related vids of the WEC teaser I posted.

Also I just ran across where John Dagys ended up post-SPEED-funeral.

Do you still get the Ghost of Speed? The channel still runs, SPEED logo in the corner. They air RU Faster, Dumbest Stuff and Dangerous Drives on a loop, unless they can feed in something from the FOX Sports channels that used to be on SPEED, like Barrett-Jacskson and racing.

No, my channels got rearranged, there's no Legends Of Speedvision to be found. The spot is used to be found has something else with a short loop nothing good on it.

It was funny listening to Bob sign-off on FS1, go to commercial, then come back and do the intro for the Bloomberg Business Channel during the BJ Auction.

Announcers mentioned that being explained during the drivers briefing. 

Peter Kox hit one and ended his race in like the first half hour.

Hope the nifty DVR feature on the stream still works after the race is over. Not sure I got another 3 hours in me.

Been a pretty interesting race so far, as expected, lots of teams don't seem to want the lead (overall or class). Just lost the Ginetta Crying or Very sad

Watching the last two hours with my coffee. Clearly that Fiat Abarth is the star of the show.

Well that was quite the finish. Gap of .4 for the win after 12 hours, brilliant.
