Peter Baron, Leo Hindery, Marc Lieb, Kyle Petty
Running 4th in class, 6th overall

With just a little more than three hours to go, the No. 43 car moved to fourth in class after the No. 35 Ferrari came in. Shortly after contact with a GTS car, No. 43 came into the pit with right front body damage. After brake rotors, tires and a radiator replacement, the car went back out on course after approximately 35 minutes in the pits. Peter Baron got out and Kyle Petty took the wheel. Halfway through his stint, Petty went off the track, brought the car in for new tires and driver change to Marc Lieb.

Leo Hindery - "It really is heartbreaking to see this happen when we've worked our way up. God help us, we finish in the top five, though of course we always hope for a podium."

Peter Baron - "It's really hard to stand here and watch. I really have to hand it to the crew; we bring in the car with mechanical problems, body damage, etc. and they work efficiently and send us back out. They're really a great crew of guys."
