Productive Practice Sessions Identify Early Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen Contenders

On a day when weather conditions were expected to create havoc at Watkins Glen International, the stormy weather stayed away and only a few sprinkles were felt at times throughout the day on Friday.

As a result, all IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship teams got in two productive practice sessions, and a few early favorites for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen have emerged. In the Prototype class, those favorites are the pair of Nissan DPi entries from Tequila Patrón ESM, which swept the top two spots on Friday’s combined time chart.
