The victory was the third of the season for WTR’s No. 10 Cadillac DPi as it also won the Rolex 24 at Daytona and then the 12 Hours of Sebring.

It was also the third straight Long Beach win for WTR.

The car was put on the pole by Taylor’s teammate/brother Ricky Taylor on Friday and was clearly the fastest car in the race.

Dalziel finished second in the No. 3 ESM Nissan DPi car, 6.3 seconds behind.

Third was Jonathan Bomarito in the No. 55 Mazda DPi.
