Edwards recorded a time of 1:16.019 late in the session to top Marc Goosens who had topped the timesheets for most of the session aboard the No.91 Dodge Viper.

Championship leader Jan Magnussen was third fastest for Corvette Racing. Magnussen and Antonio Garcia have been on a winning streak – taking the past three race wins in succession at Long Beach, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Watkins Glen.
