The No. 9 Action Express Racing Porsche pulled off what many call an upset by winning the Rolex 24. The No. 01 TELMEX/Target BMW Riley from Chip Ganassi Racing settled for Second place again.
A heavy downpour caused the race to start under caution. Slippery conditions continued even after the rain ended.
The Action Express Racing drivers combined to lead 316 of the 755 circuits. Joao Barbosa, Ryan Dalziel, Terry Borcheller and Mike Rockenfeller.
The GT race was won with a four lap advantage by Sylvain Tremblay, Jonathan Bomarito, Nick Ham and David Haskell in the SpeedSource’s No. 70 Castrol Syntec Mazda RX-8.
This year’s Rolex 24 had a record 53 leader changes among 29 drivers. All but two of the Daytona Prototypes led in the event, and all but two of them experienced serious issues that forced them out of contention.
