#96 BMW GTD car crashes as we go to commercial. Full course yellow.

Not the BMW's fault—one of the prototypes clipped a Ferrari, who then hit the BMW.

The #55 Mazda pits and promptly looses a tire.

#3 Corvette has spun coming out of the pits and hit the wall. Substantial damage. Coming around under yellow.

They may be done—I may be done.

Hanging on to see how much toast they are.

Who says I'm not emotionally involved?

Garcia quote:

"It probably went from one of my best races of my career to the most embarrassing moment of my career"

Yep.

The #4 car (and specifically Tommy Milner) should get a credit for the #3's championship.
