Fans prepare for around the clock Rolex 24 race

Fans prepare for around the clock Rolex 24 race

Filipe Albuquerque, Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi led Action Express' #5 Mustang Sampling Racing entry to victory in the Rolex 24 at Daytona on Sunday night as Formula 1 star Fernando Alonso endured a tough sports vehicle racing debut.

"In terms of the 200 wins, I think there's a time and a place to talk about that", said Ganassi, whose No. 66 Ford GT finished second.

But a new opportunity beckoned in the form of a new, handsome and sleek Acura ARX-05 DPI. So I really enjoyed. So it's a great new engine, this Cadillac.

The snowboarder known as the I-Pod won the Sochi Games on the strength of the Yolo Flip, a 1440-degree trick he patented in the leadup to those Olympics.

ANNOUNCER: Ford, previous year it was the 66th that took the victory here. "It just makes me stronger and for sure it's going to be much better for the rest of the season".

The pair of two-car teams finished first and second in their respective classes.

Sharing the wheel with Braun were Jon Bennett and veteran prototype heavyweights Loic Duval and Romain Dumas.

"It still surprises me", he said.

Co-driving the winning auto were Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi. We just prayed it would get to the end.

Sharing the No. 31 cockpit were Mike Conway, Eric Curran and Filipe Nasr. "Everyone thrives on the winning culture of this team".

Ganassi, the grand marshal of this year's race, now has eight wins in 15 Rolex appearances. The guys just did a flawless job.

"I didn't know what to expect. There's no thinking about finishing [the race] or finishing second". "Having the opportunity to join the Whelen Engineering Cadillac was an awesome experience".

Meanwhile, BMW's new M8 racer couldn't find the pace to keep with the rest of the GTLM field, with the highest-finishing vehicle running 10 laps off the Fords at the finish.

"In the race we were one of the fastest cars, Lando and Phil did an wonderful job, the team as well, repairing every issue that happened to the auto. I can't wait for the next one".

And Ryan Briscoe and Ford come across the line first in GT Le Mans at the Rolex 24. And he will do such for Richard Westbrook, for Ford.

The team's first win came in IndyCar when Michael Andretti won in March 1994 at Australia.

The No. 3 and No. 4 C7.Rs of Corvette Racing were third and fourth, but two laps back.

In the GT Daytona class, Kelvin van der Linde was leading in an Audi for Montasplant by Land Motorsport. But nevertheless, I'm happy. "We changed the alternator but in seven years I've never had an alternator problem". We just didn't have the pace.

"I think our ultimate pace will be a little bit off", Brown said. "The last thing I want to do is sit in the hotel room and not be able to be here".

Endurance racing has a different set of demands on a driver, both physically and mentally. But we can be proud.

"At the end of the day, the 5 auto ... did a fantastic job".

"Straight-line speed we're down on everyone else", he explained. And they do. Lamborghini celebrates victory at Daytona. But this Acura NSX GT3 has been fun to drive.

Bortolotti was was joined by Rolf Ineichen, Franck Perera and Rik Breukers in the No. 11 Lamborghini. But this is what the Rolex 24 is all about: "the last four hours you give everything you've got". "But the memories here, the races here, the fans here ... it's [all] second to none. And second, it will be just to take a moment to look back, and to savor it all".

Ricky Taylor had the No. 7 Acura out front 10 hours into the endurance race at Daytona International Speedway.

The winning auto, which is owned by local businessman Bob Johnson and prepped in North Carolina, set records for most laps (808) over the 3.56-mile road course and longest distance (2,876.48 miles) ever recorded in this twice-around-the-clock classic. He had started 13th and worked his way as high as 10th over the first few hours.
