Tudor United Sports Car Series at the 63rd Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida was an exciting race with 43
cars in 4 classes. I have always loved these cars racing as a marshal & blue flagging. It makes it exciting with Prototype (P) class
cars racing as the same time GT Daytona (GTD) class cars. The move of the race was P class Car 5 Barbosa Corvette using a slower car
on track as a chicane over P class Car 01 Dixon Ford EcoBoost Riley & then never looking back.
