The leaderboard was holding steady Saturday night with Crowdstrike by Riley continuing to widen its lead at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill presented by Hawk Performance.
Crowdstrike has opened a 26-lap lead over Three Thieves Racing, which was running in second place as of 8 pm. Rounding out the top five are Honda Racing THRW1, MooreWood Creative and Honda Racing THRW2.
Crowdstrike’s Ligier LMP320 continues to build a solid lead. The team tried to run on slicks before switching back to rain tires.
“We’re just clicking off laps and running around,” said team owner Bill Riley.
The Thunderhill Raceway asphalt is drying, but more light rain is expected to return off and on over the night. Crews have bundled up and huddled around space heaters as temperatures are hovering in the low 40s.
MooreWood Creative had swapped engines in the BMW E46 before Friday’s qualifying session yet the car continues to run strong, said Justin Ross, team principal.
“One car is on its spare motor, essentially. The other one’s doing all right,” said Ross, whose team has two cars currently in the top 10. “I think like everybody, we’re kind of fighting track and water and electrical gremlins and hoping everything kind of dries out and stays somewhat dry.”
