Tom O’Gorman and Shelby Blackstock claimed a second consecutive victory in the TCR class of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge. After winning the opening at Daytona, the LA Honda World Racing duo was victorious in Sebring's two-hour race.
O’Gorman-Blackstock beat by 7 seconds the JDC-Miller Motorsports Audi RS 3 LMS driven by last year’s champion Britt Casey jr. – who had set pole position – and Mikey Taylor; the podium was completed by the HART Honda Civic of Ryan Eversley and Chad Gilsinger. Mason Filippi and Harry Gottsacker were classified fourth in the best of the Bryan Herta Autosport Hyundai Veloster N cars.
Eventually only the top six cars finished on the same lap as the winners.
