You had to see it to believe it
# 4 Tommy Milner jumps from fifth to first in final 2 laps. It was quite a thriller.
# 911 Porsche 911 Nick Tandy and # 62 Ferrari 488 Tony Vilander (re-starting from a full course yellow) desperately tried to catch the leading # 67 Ford GT of Michael Westbrook in turn 5. (Kind of like what you see in NASCAR). That move put them both onto the grass. # 912 Fred Makowiecki 911 also fell back in the mix. This single incident allowed Milner to move up 3 spots!

Westbrook’s car was apparently nudged in defending his lead. Then on the final lap Westbrook lost power down the long straight heading into turn 5. Milner moved to the right past a PC and Westbrook and held on to win. (Brian Cleary photo)
Milner benefited from in his words “the perfect set-up” after a pit stop with 51 min to race.
Just one race after Lime Rock, the Corvette racing team wins # 101 at Road America. You can’t make this stuff up.
# 31 Dane Cameron team Whelen dodged a PC and stormed by # 5 teammate Joao Barboza Action Express entering turn 1 to lead for good.
# 31 Whelen and # 5 Action Express each seem to have a lock with 2 races to go. The # 55 Mazda of Jonathan Bomarito was in command only to lose track position they never recovered from a bad pit stop call under green.
