SunTrust Racing holds the lead after 12 hours of attrition and incidents in the 47th running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The field had just returned to green flag racing after the 12th caution in the twice-around-the-clock enduro with Pedro Lamy holding the overall top position in the team's Ford Dallara.

Two of he early leaders are still close at hand with Alex Lloyd holding the No. 02 Chip Ganassi Racing Lexus Riley in second followed by Hurley Haywood in the No. 59 Porsche Riley belonging to the Brumos Racing team that has been the team to beat for speed during the time trails leading up to the race.

The 2008 champions in the No. 01 CGR hold down fourth in their Lexus Riley with Memo Rojas in the cockpit. All of the top four Daytona Prototypes were within the eight second mark on lap 361 but the race still has one more time around the clock to get to the checkered flags; it is still anyone's race to win or lose.

The leading GT team sits ninth overall with Kevin Roush in the Farnbacher Loles Motorsports Porsche GT3 with a one lap advantage to their closest rivals from The Racer's Group contingent.

Andy Lally holds the TRG No. 67 Porsche GT3 in second with teammate Richard Lietz in the No. 66 sitting third.

Motorsport.com will bring additional reports during the remaining 12 hours of racing action.
