SEBRING, Fla. — Sean Rayhall of Comprent Motor Sports led the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda field to the green flag for Friday’s 45-minute timed Race 2 at Sebring Int’l Raceway.

But ultimately, it was Performance Tech once again taking the top spot on the L1 podium, this time with Ryan Booth behind the wheel.

Nearly immediately after the green flag flew over Rayhall, a full-course caution was implemented due to an incident in Turn 13 as the No. 88 car of Dan Weyland spun into the wall and sustained significant damage to the left front and rear of his Élan DP-02, Eurosport Racing entry.

The field went green again on Lap 2, and Ryan Booth took advantage of the restart to pass his Performance Tech teammate Daniel Goldburg for second position.

After a few frenzied laps the Prototype Lites drivers settled in with Rayhall focusing forward and gaining a four-second advantage on second-place Booth by lap seven. Running out front with an unobstructed track, Rayhall bested the race lap record he set in race one at Sebring with a flying lap of 1:58.732.

On lap nine, race one winner Daniel Goldburg lost control of his Performance Tech car while closely pursuing Ryan Booth for second position and spun nose first into the turn-one wall, bringing out a full course caution.
