  As team prepares for Rolex 24

A lot can happen in 20 years. Just ask anyone on the Corvette Racing program. Sports car racing’s premier GT program readies to complete its second full decade in the 2018 season. It’s unchartered territory in the modern era of North American endurance racing.

  By Holly Cain

There have been "all-star" driver lineups in the Rolex 24 At Daytona before, but this year's Team Penske Acura ARX-05 DPi two-car roster is absolutely one for the ages. And while we've seen our share of star power over the years in the Rolex 24, what's unique about the Penske team's lineup is that they won't only be challenging for a new Rolex watch this weekend but will contend full time hoping to land an IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Prototype season title as well.

Rolex 24 GT Team-By-Team
  GTLM and GTD

As the Rolex 24 At Daytona approaches and with last weekend’s Roar Before the Rolex 24 now in the books, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Le Mans (GTLM) and GTD class fields has taken shape. Here’s a quick, team-by-team look at what’s in store for each entry in the GT class.

Off To A "Roaring" Start

Scott Pruett to call it a career after 2018 Rolex 24
  By Holly Cain
Scott Pruett
Scott Pruett walked into the Daytona International Speedway media center and smiled widely as he looked at the Lexus banner hanging behind the podium displaying three cars he had driven in the Rolex 24 and honoring him for a “storied career in racing” that spanned five decades. Moments later, the 57-year old Pruett smiled again and calmly, thoughtfully, announced his retirement from the sport, revealing he will hang his helmet up after the upcoming Jan. 27-28 Rolex 24 At Daytona – the great sports car endurance race that Pruett has hoisted the overall victory trophy five times in an amazing career that’s spanned five decades.
