Trio pembalap tim Wayne Taylor Racing berhasil melanjutkan tren kemenangan mereka usai menjadi juara keseluruhan di balapan Sebring 12 Jam 2017. Dominasi mobil prototipe Cadillac dimulai sejak nasib sial yang menimpa peraih pole, Rebellion #13.

Menjelang satu jam pertama, mobil Oreca #13 dari tim Rebellion yang dikemudikan oleh Neel Jani, mendapatkan hukuman penalti drive-through akibat pelanggaran saat pitstop. Pimpinan balapan akhirnya diambil alih oleh mobil Cadillac dan bertahan hingga bendera finis dikibarkan.

Setelah sempat bertarung sengit melawan WTR, mobil Cadillac #5 dari tim Action Express yang dikemudikan oleh trio Joao Barbossa, Christian Fittipaldi, dan Filipe Albuquerque menempati peringkat kedua.

Melengkapi hasil 1-2-3 untuk pabrikan Cadillac adalah mobil #31 juga dari tim Action Express. Jarak mereka terpaut cukup jauh dari rombongan pimpinan balapan usai insiden dengan mobil Nissan DPi yang dikemudikan oleh Johannes van Overbeek di Tikungan 17.

Sementara kelas PC dimenangi oleh tim Performance Tech Motorsport #38 dengan trio pembalap mereka: James French, Kyle Masson, dan Pato O'Ward 

Corvette rebut juara GTLM

Strategi pitstop berbeda diterapkan oleh dua pabrikan besar dari Amerika Serikat, Corvette dan Ford. Berkat periode bendera kuning, mobil Corvette #3 yang dikemudikan trio pembalap: Jan Magnussen (ayah pembalap F1, Kevin), Antonio Garcia, dan Mike Rockenfeller, berhasil muncul sebagai pimpinan balapan.

Meski mobil Ford #66 terus berusaha mengejar mereka, usaha maksimal dari Garcia sudah cukup untuk membendung serangan pabrikan 'oval biru' itu hingga bendera finis dikibarkan. Corvette menjadi juara di GTLM dengan jarak keunggulan 4,5 detik.

Perebutan posisi podium ketiga terjadi hingga putaran terakhir saat pembalap Ferrari 488 dari tim Risi Competizione, James Calado, berduel melawan Ford #67 yang dikemudikan Richard Westbrook. Insiden melintir yang dialami oleh Westbrook di putaran terakhir memastikan posisi Ferrari di peringkat ketiga GTLM.

Drama putaran terakhir juga terjadi di kelas GT Daytona, setelah pembalap Belanda yang mengemudikan mobil Mercedes AMG GT3 #33, Jerome Bleekemolen, berhasil mengambil alih pimpinan lomba di putaran terakhir, memanfaatkan kesalahan yang dilakukan oleh peraih pole, Tritan Vautier.
