Three large sparkling IMSA trophies will be among the glittering holiday décor.

The racing trio – who in 2017 won the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship Prototype class title together as a team with victories at in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts and Motul Petit Le Mans – are coming off another season of achievement. This time, each Taylor won a significant and different IMSA championship in their own right.

Wayne Taylor, a former IMSA champion driver who owns the much-heralded, multi-championship team bearing his name, earned the prestigious 2020 IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup crown in the Daytona Prototype international (DPi) class. It marked the first time in Taylor’s long and storied career that his team has taken that title.
