Barbosa, teaming with Christian Fittipaldi in the Action Express Racing No. 5 Corvette DP, finished 48.964 seconds ahead of Scott Pruett in the 2-hour, 45-minute race on the at the 2.439-mile road course.

''I was saving fuel the whole time,'' Barbosa said. ''The end was kind of easy, but to get there was so, so hard. It was unbelievable. ... I kept asking the team, `How are we doing on fuel? ''And they said, `Don't worry. Just keep doing what you're doing. We should be fine.'''

Barbosa and Fittipaldi took the series lead, moving two points ahead of fourth-place finishers Jordan and Ricky Taylor.

Pruett was second for the third straight year. He teamed with Sage Karam in the No. 01 Chip Ganassi Racing Ford EcoBoost/Riley.

Jonathan Bomarito and Kuno Wittmer picked up the first victory of the season for Dodge Viper SRT in the GT Le Mans class. Subbing for suspended Alex Tagliani, IndyCar regular Jack Hawksworth teamed with Chris Cumming to win the Prototype Challenge class. Alessandro Balzan and Jeff Westphal took the GT Daytona class, beating Christopher Haase and Bryce Miller to the finish line by more than a lap.
