#14 and #44 get together and go off in turn 1! Both cars get going again. #44 has left rear suspension damage.
Flat tire for the #52 LMP2 car.
Caution is out. #12 Lexus has wrecked at the exit of turn 1.
#10 DPi got into the #12 Lexus trying to pass on the inside through the turn. The closing speed on the in-car replay was incredible! Not sure who should get the blame. Looked like a racing deal but I could see the #10 getting penalized.
Coverage of Petit Le Mans will now switch over to the NBCSN Sports App until 5:30 PM Eastern here in the states.

Howdy, GTPlaneteers! Liking the 2019 Petit Le Mans? I have only mostly seen the first few minutes of the first few laps of the 2019 PLM. What I DO want to say, though, is that I wish Scott Atherton well in his retirement. He's been an excellent person as IMSA President. Basically been the head man of the series since being the (then) American Le Mans Series. I have lots of respect for Scott Atherton.
I haven't seen much of the race since, nor have I followed Radio Le Mans coverage or anything. Though NBCSN will show most of the rest of the race at the top of the hour as of the time of this post.
#55 Mazda back behind the wall for a second time.
After a bit of a delay due to NASCAR qualifying finishing up, coverage of Petit Le Mans has now switched to NBCSN here in the States.
#10 Cadillac loops it around in turn 6. Keeps it going.
Kinda a combo of a sad and happy IMSA day... Sad president of IMSA retiring as he has done such a great job over the last couple decades and also sad for the Ford GT racing program leaving, but still have some hope. Happy though that come 2020 we “will” see that new mid engine Corvette become the new GTLM king. Ok Porsche guys let the flaming begin...
Scott Atherton's visits to the IMSA Radio booth is always one of the the best things in the race. It's always great to have the President of IMSA talking with the people running the radio broadcast.
I really hope that whoever takes over as President of IMSA is as passionate with the fans as Scott Atherton is. I really hope that the traditional IMSA Radio visits from the IMSA President continue next year. Its at least good to know that he's staying on the board (already known) and just confirmed that he will remain as the main contact point with the FIA/ACO.
Porsche is taking one of the GTLM cars to Talladega to run some parade laps prior to tomorrow's NASCAR race.
Yep. That's awesome. Would love to see how each GTE can do on the ovals.
Richard Childress to do laps in an actual Dale Sr car at Talladega too.
On topic, cars no longer in our future.
Now in the final hour of the 2019 season.
Caution is out with 38 minutes to go. #63 Ferrari stuck in the gravel in the chicane.
Edit: He's been pulled out and looks like he'll be able to continue.
Always a downer to see another season pass by and gone, but the good news is only 3 months till the next 24 Hour in Daytona and many new cars a coming.
Green flag! 25 and a half minutes remain!
For some random reason I took a peak at Mustang Sampling's website and noticed they made a statement about their Action Express sponsorship. For the most part it's the usual stuff, but a part towards the end caught my eye as it seems they aren't necessarily done with IMSA.
One of the guys from Porsche talked about it on IMSA radio (I think it was one of the drivers, can't remember for sure).
Also, #5 in the pits with a puncture.
