Agren, meanwhile, would make it her second third place finish in a row in her No. 96 Mygale/Honda – staying out of trouble and running at the front the entire event.
Fourth place went to surging Bamford, who looked like he could win the race as he battled for the lead in the closing stages, leading multiple laps. The Masters Class driver led into the last lap and lost the lead in turn 10.
“I know what to do tomorrow now,” said Bamford. “Teltiz went in deep in turn 10 and I had to give it up, and then the other two cars got through, it was let them through or crash. Teltiz really drove it in there.”
Joe Colasacco rounded out the top five with Paul Alspach in sixth and Scott Rubenzer in seventh.
Lew Cooper followed in eighth in the Van Diemen/Ford from Polestar – reassembled in just two hours after the veteran had a relatively large incident in early morning warm-up.
Art Foster and Mike Scanlan completed the top ten.
