Rolex 24 Hour 21: Wayne Taylor No.10 leads

With just 3 hours to go in the Rolex 24 at Daytona caution has tightened up the field with the top-4 cars running essentially nose-to-tail. When the green flag flew Max Angelelli opened up a gap on 2nd place as IndyCar driver Sage Karam made a move and passed Christian Fittipaldi for 2nd, youth getting the best of old age.

And now old man Fittipaldi is falling into the clutches of IndyCar ace Scott Dixon who appears ready to drop the Brazilian back to 4th. They had better get IndyCar ace Sebastien Bourdais back in the Action Express car if they still hope to win this thing.

The no. 3 Corvette leads GTLM by 1.7 sec. over the Rahal BMW currently driven by Farfus, both on the same lap.
