From the 12 hour to the 18 hour mark, the intense drama that marked the first half of the Rolex 24 At Daytona has slowed a bit. Only three cautions slowed the action. At 18 hours, the competitors had completed 554 laps, totaling 1,972.24 miles.

The No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Proto-Auto Lola of Tracy W. Krohn, Nic Jonsson, Ricardo Zonta and Colin Braun has kept the pace and maintained 7th position. Since losing 13 laps when the car got punted off the track before 2:00 a.m., their run has been flawless. Nic Jonsson turned over the car to Tracy Krohn at 4:00 a.m. Krohn did an hour stint before relinquishing the car to Colin Braun. Braun got out at approximately 6:45 a.m. for Zonta, who maintained the pace until Nic Jonsson assumed the wheel again at 8:55 a.m.

Colin Braun, driver of the No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Proto-Auto Lola:

"Well it went good. I think we seemed to get a little bit faster over the night. I think as it cooled down it helped our car. We're just trying to maintain a pace and stay out of trouble. We got behind there in the middle of the night so now we really can't afford to make a mistake. We've got to be perfect from here on out and still be quick. As we go we seemed to get a little bit quicker comparatively."

"I think I'll drive again, I hope so."

Ricardo Zonta, driver of the No. 75 Krohn Racing Ford Proto-Auto Lola:

"We are just carrying on. We don't have much chance to win so we just need to finish the race. Not much to say, just keeping the car on the track and try to finish. Everything is fine. We didn't have any problem. The balance of the car was a little bit worse than the middle stints so we played a little bit with the tires and the tire pressure and made the car better. Otherwise, we are just trying to keep the car on the track."
