Yah...Corvette has won this series like 3 of the last 5 years? Always a great show down here at Sebring when the 12 hours runs.

I really hope CR adopts a new approach to their pit strategy because it's cost them more than a couple of races this year. They had an excellent chance to win last race when the Fords and Porsche's either went out or had trouble, They led most of the race and when it came time to seal the deal, they botched it.

I am wishing them well and based on their attempts to take P1 on the podium, they are really going to need it.

It is the Corvette's championship to lose. Plain and simple. Lets hope they keep it together.

They dropped it because of really poor fan attendance. I was at the last COTA Weathertech Race in 2017, and it was a ghost town. It seemed like about the only folks there were either involved with a race team or employees of vendors.

Been in the Corral there last 8 years running, doing that again next year along with Daytona in January. Did 3 races this season, Sebring, Watkins Glen and CTMP.

They did, barely, but a win is a win. The crew bailed Antonio and Mags out after the mistake, pretty impressive pit work to get the #3 back on track with a whole new front clip in under 4 minutes.

What a nail biter!!!!

That trophy may have the 3 car drivers names on it, but it belongs to the entire team. What the pit crew did was stunning and then the 4 car absolutely turned and burned in chasing down the 67 car pushing them so hard, they made that mistake the 3 car so desperately needed.

What sucked was how badly the FOX broadcast was on this.. I listened to the race on IMSA Radio and they closely followed the entire drama, FOX, blehhhhhh.

I sure hope NBCSN does a way better job than FOX.

Just Finished watching the Final 5hrs.NO Commercials,Perfect!
Truly a Team Effort.Really liking this type of racing.The skill,talent and ***** to keep these cars on track with some rubbing is really appreciated.
Can't imagine how difficult it is with different types of cars to pass and let pass.NUTS!
Great in car camera shots of how difficult it is to drive these Monsters..
The race coverage really spends a ton of time on the prototypes.Figuring their gas mileage was off a little bit.The next network needs to spread coverage out more with the other classes.
Super impresses with getting the 3 car back on track.It was their championship to lose and they almost did.Takes a TEAM To win Championships.
All kinds of info.and final interview was well said on Ian's twitter page.Twitter has the best up to date info:
Twitter page link has been spammed
CORVETTE WINNS!
