For the first time in nearly 15 years, the overall winner in this weekend’s 62nd Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring won’t be an Audi, Peugeot or Porsche.

While the launch of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship has resulted in the elimination of the LMP1 class, it has opened up the floodgates for a mix of new manufacturers to make their mark on America’s oldest endurance race.

Chevrolet, Ford, Honda and Nissan are among the engine manufacturers in the new-look Prototype class that will be vying for top honors on Saturday (10 a.m. ET, Live! FOX Sports 1) in what will likely be the most competitive field in more than two decades.
