40 years after Mark Donohue won the Rolex 24 at Daytona, his son David has won the 2009 running of the event at the wheel of the #58 Brumos Racing Porsche Riley along with team mates Darren Law, Buddy Rice and Antonio Garcia. The emotional victory came following an exciting race where the top 4 finishers were within seconds of each other on the same lap.
Grand Am press release after the break
I suspect that Will is currently on a plane somewhere between rainy Fla and flooded Ca as I write this. Will was kind enough to grab a bit of pit lane video in the early evening yesterday during the Rolex 24. This was a typical DP stop, with no repairs. During this stop, they dump in enough fuel for about an hour of racing. I’m sure Will will have more details later on.
