Fighting fatigue key to finishing Rolex

This year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona is entering its final three hours. Consider a standard IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race is less than that – only two hours and 40 minutes- and consider that with that distance still to go at Daytona, you have already been racing for 21 hours and 20 minutes.

Ford’s lead tightens with six hours to go

Ford Chip Ganassi Racing has continued to dominate the GT Le Mans class in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, but their gap has tightened from earlier as this year’s race is past the three-quarter mark. Thanks to the fourth caution of the race for debris, with a sandbag on course at the first hairpin among other items, it’s allowed the No. 3 Corvette C7.R to get within a second of the pair of Ford GTs. At the 18-hour mark, the No....

Surviving the night key part of Rolex 24

One of the greatest challenges about the Rolex 24 at Daytona is that a majority of it takes place at night. Compared to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, of which more than 16 hours takes place during daylight hours, Daytona offers less than 11 hours of daylight. We're just under 24 hours away from #Rolex24! And at @DISupdates, the amount of daylight time is far less than Le Mans. pic.twitter.com/4dAnEJd16h — Michelin Alley...
