It traditionally has offered race fans a glimpse into the upcoming season and built anticipation for the season-opening race, the Rolex 24 At Daytona, at the end of the month. “The Roar,” as it has become known, takes on even more significance in 2018 for Rolex 24 competitors.

Making of a Champion: Ricky Taylor


Staff Report, IMSA Wire Service

The second in a series of articles highlighting each champion driver in the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, “Making of a Champion” shares some previous experiences and “backstory” that led to this driver becoming a champion.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Without question, 2017 was a life-changing year for Ricky Taylor.

Co-driving the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R with his younger brother, Jordan Taylor, for the Wayne Taylor Racing team owned by his father, Ricky Taylor earned his first IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

En route to the title, the team won the first five races of the season. That streak included the first victory for the brothers in the Rolex 24 At Daytona as Ricky came out on top in a thrilling, late-race battle with Filipe Albuquerque. They followed that with a win at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, repeating a 36 Hours of Florida sweep that Wayne accomplished as a driver 21 years earlier.

Staff Report, IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Rolex 24 At Daytona has enjoyed outstanding driver star power throughout its history, including NASCAR and IndyCar champions, the world’s greatest sports car racers, and the occasional Formula 1 World Champion.

Foss Continues to Write Name in IMSA Record Books


Staff Report, IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – One can be either the best number or the loneliest number.

For IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge driver Eric Foss, being the standalone champion of the Street Tuner (ST) class feels like a little bit of both.

Foss’ second Continental Tire Challenge championship comes on the heels of one of his most historic seasons yet, but the success didn’t come without its trials.

After leading the point standings for five consecutive races in the No. 56 Murillo Racing Porsche Cayman, Foss suddenly found himself without his regular co-driver Jeff Mosing, who sustained a back injury during a Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama race in July. Mosing powered through the pain for nearly two months before a doctor diagnosed the extent of his injury and told him to withdraw from the remaining two Continental Tire Challenge races.
