Your leading Cadillac at the Rolex 24

After hours of persistent overnight and morning rain, a dry line has formed on the 3.56-mile Daytona International Speedway road course. With just over three hours remaining in the 55th Rolex 24 at Daytona, Jordan Taylor currently leads in the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac. Christian Fittipaldi sits second in the No. 5 Mustang Sample Cadillac with Rene Rast holding a steady third in the No. 90 Visit Florida Racing Multimatic/Riley.

Joey Hand sits an impressive 5th overall, leading the GTLM category in the No. 66 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing machine. However, Hand's lead is far from secure as the top-6 GTLM cars are currently within six seconds of one another.

It's been a rough race for the Prototype Challenge class, marred by numerous spins. Currently, James French in the No. 38 Performance Tech Motorsports entry holds a comfortable 22-lap class lead.

Finally, Mario Farnbacher leads the GTD class in the No. 33 Mercedes.
