The No. 33 Riley Mercedes-AMG GT3 team stayed hot in opening practice at the Virginia road course. Keating beat out Long in the Park Place Motorsports Porsche for the fastest lap of the challenging circuit among the GT Daytona entries. Keating and co-pilot, Jeroen Bleekemolen, are fresh off a pole position, but disappointing finish at Road America a couple weeks ago. They'll look to rebound Sunday at VIR.
