In the headlining "Prototype" class, where P2 machines from the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) will race Daytona Prototypes from Grand-Am, the officials announced performance would be balanced by air restrictor. They also revealed six-speed gearboxes and paddle shifters would be allowed for both type of cars.

In the "GT Daytona" (GTD) class, for cars from the Grand-Am GT and GX categories and from the FIA GT3 class, officials introduced one-piece, single-lug wheels, a spec rear wing and an air restrictor.
In "GT Le Mans" (GTLM), for ALMS GT cars, the only notable addition is a safety net around the driver.
Finally, "Prototype Challenge" (PC) class cars, which come straight from the ALMS rulebook, cannot run without a data logger anymore.
The series will continue to introduce performance-balancing rules to keep the field close.
