The series’ stop at Virginia International Raceway featured only the two GT classes. In six GT Le Mans races so far this year points leaders Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner (#4 Corvette Racing C.7R) had four wins and six podiums and Ryan Briscoe and Richard Westrbrook (#67 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing GT) three wins and five podiums.
Jan Magnussen (#3 Corvette) started on pole, with the #4 right next door. Joey Hand (#66 Ford GT) lined up third and Giancarlo Fisichella (#62 Risi Competitzione Ferrari 488) fourth. Madison Snow (#48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracan) and Matt Bell (#9 Stevenson Motorsports Audi) lined up 1-2 in GT Daytona.
Hand and Fisichella passed Milner exiting Turn 1. Dirk Werner (#25 BMW Team RLL M6) took third from Fisichella with 2 hr 13 min left in the 2:45 race. Snow carried a 6.5-sec lead over Bell in GTD at 2:03. Milner briefly passed both Fisichella and Werner for third with 1:55 to go before leaving the track and surrendering P3 back to the Ferrari.
Snow pitted from the GTD lead at 1:52. The #3 Corvette did the same in GTLM a few minutes later, Antonio Garcia taking over for Magnussen. The #4 got a drive through penalty for an extra crew member performing service. When the pit cycle was complete Garcia led Dirk Mueller (#66) and Earl Bamber (#912 Porsche North America 911). Snow led Lawson Aschenbach (#9) in GTD.
Bamber left the track with 1:14 to go, Toni Vilander moving into third in the #62 Ferrari. Snow made his second top with 57 min remaining, handing off to Bryan Sellers. Aschenbach came in the following lap. Garcia and Mueller made their final stops at the same time at the 52-min mark.
The Corvette beat the Ford out of pit lane to retain the lead. The Ferrari remained in third once pit stops were done, Fisichella back behind the wheel. Sellers and Aschenbach continued 1-2 in GTD. The #4 left the track with just more than 6 min to go, bringing out a full course caution and closing the field.
Competition resumed at 1 min 35 sec. Bamber spun Fischella to take third. Snow, Aschenbach, and Andy Lally (#44 Magnus Racing Audi) finished 1-3 in GTD.
