Here is your front runner; Autohaus Motorsports #88 Camaro GT.R driven by Jordan Taylor (19 years old) and Bill Lester.
Edit : Apologies, I originally posted than Banner Motorsports was in 2nd place overall in points and that is not the case. The #11 Brumos Porsche is in 2nd place while Banner Motorsports is currently in 9th with 263 points. Again, apologies for the error. Banner is currently in 3rd place in at Mid-Ohio, Stevensons is in 1st, Autohaus (1st place overall) is in 9th. Only 10 minutes into the race.
Bill Lester in the #88 Autohaus Camaro has spin out and has made contact with the barriers. The points leader has fallen back to 18th place. Stevenson and Banner Camaros in 1st and 2nd.
Jordan Taylor replaces Bill Lester in the #88 Autohaus Camaro, currently 17th place. The #59 Brumos Porsche GT3 driven by Andrew Davis is currently in the lead and coming into this race, was 3 points behind the Autohaus Camaro.
The Autohaus Camaro was experiencing severe difficultly with handling and control which ultimately caused them to spin with no contact from other competitors.
I will post the points system up in a few minutes.

Not bad for the first full season
This year's grand am racing program was absolutely awesome! Next year audi will run a team and Bondurant is probably going to run Corvettes. In my opinion, this type of racing is what it's all about! Congrats to Chevrolet and all the teams that competed!
Congrats to team CHEVY !
