Sonoma, California - KPAX Racing's Jordan Pepper topped the class and overall second practice session for the Pros, while DXDT Racing's Colin Braun set the fastest lap for the ProAm contingent during the GT World Challenge America session.

Pepper's 1:37.700 lap in the #3 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 set the fast lap by a margin of 0.038-seconds over the second-in-class position teammate Corey Lewis in the #6 Lamborghini Huracan GT3. Third in the Pro class was #33 Winward Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 driver Philip Ellis, ticking off a 1:39.166.

Braun's lap in the #04 Mercedes-AMG GT3 captured the top Pro-Am lap with a 1:37.742 effort; however, an incident after the time-setting lap saw the vehicle leave the course, causing the extended Red Flag that shortened the practice session. Once the course returned to green to complete the session, the lap times that would hold for second and third in the Pro-Am class were from Braun teammate Michael Cooper (#19 DXDT Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3) with a 1:39.583 lap and Drew Staveley (#12 Ian Lacy Racing Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3) with a 1:39.789 lap time.
