Fittipaldi held off Michael Valiante by 0.265 seconds in the second-closest finish in the history of the Daytona Prototype class in the six-hour event on the 3.4-mile, 11-turn Watkins Glen International road circuit. The No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP teammates also won June 15 at Mid-Ohio.

``It's a great feeling going two in a row,'' said Fittipaldi, treated for dehydration after the race. ``We didn't have the quickest car on the track, but the team did an outstanding job capitalizing on opportunities and getting to the checkered flag.''

Fittipaldi and Barbosa moved within five points of season leaders Max Angelelli and Jordan Taylor with five races left. Angelelli and Taylor finished 10th after breaking a shifter arm and shift linkage on the first lap.

Robin Liddell led the final 11 laps to win in the GT class, the fourth win in five races with teammate John Edwards in the No. 57 Stevenson Automotive Group Camaro. Joel Miller, Tristan Nunez and Yojiro Terada gave Mazda and Speedsource its fourth consecutive victory in the GX class in the No. 00 Visit Florida Racing Mazda 6.
