The XM Satellite Radio entry, making its debut in the series, finished second overall.
"This is my most special victory for many reasons, one, because I got to share it with my friends Tony and Dario," Herta said. "I have to take my hat off to the group. I have never seen a group that has worked so hard and put in so much effort. You wouldn't believe how many problems we had in testing and it's a testament to bring it here and to bring us this result."
Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves also competed in the LMP2 field and finished third in class, fifth overall in Penske Racing’s entry.
Franchitti and Kanaan return to their full-time assignments Saturday in the IndyCar Series’ season-opening XM Satellite Radio Indy 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
