  by Stephen Cox
There are plenty of endurance races available to anyone who wants to race $500 junkyard relics. There are also some endurance races available to drivers who want to race million dollar prototypes. But the options are pretty limited for those who want to race something in between. Enter the World Racing League (WRL).
Latest Happenings in the World of Racing
  by Brian Carroccio

In what is typically a time of dryness and despair for motor racing fans, there was a bit of a respite this weekend in the form of an entertaining Rolex 24 at Daytona. While there were many enjoyable parts of the famous enduro, particularly the race to the finish in the GTLM class, for my money, the story of this weekend’s race was the breakout performance of Pipo Derani. There have, of course, been other stories in the world of racing of late.

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida – The global nature of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship has seldom been more evident than in looking at the driver lineup for the 54th running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona. One need look no further than the polesitter of the race -- Russian IndyCar driver Mikhail Aleshin, who took the Prototype class TOTAL Pole Award in the Nissan-powered No. 37 BR01 fielded by Russia-based SMP Racing in extremely wet conditions -- for evidence of that fact.
