Piloting the #1 Chip Ganassi Racing BMW-Riley protype, Scott Pruett (fifth over-all win), Memo Rojas, Juan Pablo Montoya, Charlie Kimball and Scott Dixon take home the win for Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona for DP class this year, while the #24 Audi Sport Customer Racing/AJR WeatherTech Audi R8 of Filipe Alburquerque, Oliver Jarvis, Edoardo Mortara, and Dion Von Moltke take the checkered flag for GT class. The Napleton Racing #16 Porsche Cayman won in the GX series with Shane Lewis, David Donohue, Dr. Jim Norman and Nelson Canache.


There was no doubt that this year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona was eventful with an exciting last couple hours thought to come down to a fuel-racing-game. All through the night there were only a few incidents while the race as a whole did not have many serious mishaps. Scott Pruett will surely get a nod in the history books as he ties Hurley Haywood with a record 5 Rolex 24 at Daytona wins.

NASCAR drivers Marcos Ambrose and A.J Allmendinger (one of last year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona winners) finished third. Jamie McMurray in the #02 car for CG finished in 32nd position. Clint Bowyer and Michael Waltrip in the GT series finished 15th overall.
