After earning the GT Daytona class pole on Saturday, Corey Lewis and Bryan Sellers crushed the opposition by leading every single lap of the race – 110 in total. The result came after the #48 Huracán GT3 Evo, sponsored by Italdesign, topped the timesheets in both practice sessions on Friday and finished second fastest in Saturday morning’s practice.

At the green flag, Lewis opened a healthy lead and handed over to Sellers with one hour, 42 minutes remaining. Sellers remained in the lead, pitted again with 58 minutes to go and eventually crossed the finish line with 31.424 seconds over the field.

The victory was Sellers tenth in IMSA premier competition and fourth for Paul Miller Racing in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Lewis scored his third IMSA victory and second for Paul Miller Racing.

“We had a great race car. Bryan and Corey did a fantastic job keeping everything clean, but we also didn’t have the same level of tire degradation that some of the other cars experienced,” Paul Miller Racing founder, Paul Miller said. “The exciting part to us is that by winning we were able to move Lamborghini into a one-point lead in the Manufacturer’s Championship in the GTD class”.

“This is the best possible way to celebrate our brand-new sponsorship on the Huracán GT3 Evo – concluded Italdesign’s CEO Jörg Astalosch. Italdesign and Lamborghini worked together for decades and now we can add this new chapter to our co-operation”.
