We're Live in Daytona Covering the Rolex 24
Fast cars and wet tracks do not go together. Even still, the annual Rolex 24 hour race at Daytona International Speedway must go on. And go on it will. We’re live from Daytona covering everything you need to know about the 24-hour race, rain or shine (preferably the latter). RELATED: See More of the 2016 Ford GT Le Mans Race Car
It was soggy. Super soggy, to be exact. The constant rain didn’t make practice or qualifying anywhere near easy for these race teams. Two cars ended up going off the track during practice—both Ferraris—but eventually the skies cleared into the night, and paved a path for some serious speed on the track.
Here’s how the pole results look—though, we’re not entirely sure how the field will sit, with a number of cars not being able to qualify.
