2014 Daytona Rolex 24: United Sportscar Starting Line-Up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

Welcome to 2014 and the 52nd Rolex 24 at Daytona! The 2014 Daytona 24 is about to kick off the racing season in the United States in mighty fashion with a host of all-star drivers. For over 50 years, the Daytona International Speedway has been converted their 2.5-mile tri-oval into a spectacular road course and race for 24 hours. The Daytona 24 is one of the classic endurance races.

In 2011, DIS laid down new pavement around the historic 2.5-mile oval last season, and speeds hit record numbers. And this year, the speeds broke records again!

On Thursday, the No 99 Corvette DP driven by Gurney/Fogarty/Gidley/Law grabbed Pole with a crushing record lap of 1:38.270 / 130.416 mph around the 3.56 mile infield road course, 12-turn speedway road course. The previous record was 1:40.553 / 127.455 mph.

Beyond the history and the records, the Daytona 24 is an all-star event where the top racing drivers from around the world come to compete.

The dominate Ganassi teams are full of IndyCar stars like Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan plus NASCAR star & Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray. The squad has five wins, and two runner-up finishes since 2006.

Other IndyCar stars also racing today include Justin Wilson, Sebastien Bourdais, Charlie Kimball, James Hinchcliffe, Ryan Briscoe, Tristan Vautier (the 2013 Sunoco Rookie of the Year), Alex Tagliani and more! Plus NASCAR stars A.J. Allmendinger, Kyle Larson, and road course heroes Max Papis, Boris Said and Scott Pruett.

The Daytona 24 is a 24-hour race, and anything can happen.... and it usually does.
