GT class traffic for the Daytona Prototypes has been a hot topic after drivers are getting out of the car.
“It’s brutal,” said Michael Shank Racing’s A.J. Allmendinger. “It’s so bad out there right now. It’s a struggle just trying to figure out where everybody is going. We were catching the GT cars in groups of like 10 cars. That’s something the last couple of years that I don’t remember catching groups of cars like that. It’s always going to be like that. It’s always going to be a struggle. You just got to stay clean and be patient when you have to be.”
