Scott Pruett will aim for the record books during the 50th anniversary celebration of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Pruett is a four-time Rolex 24 winner and will attempt to tie Hurley Haywood's record five victories his weekend.
Pruett was part of last year's race-winning team in the headlining Daytona Prototype class. Pruett is again part of the star-studded entries from the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates organization.
He's teamed in the No. 01 BMW/Riley DP with Memo Rojas, IndyCar Series driver Graham Rahal and sports car veteran Joey Hand. The No. 02 team from Ganassi is made up of NASCAR drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Jamie McMurray and IndyCar stars Dario Franchitti
and Scott Dixon.
Qualifying is Thursday at Daytona International Speedway. The
twice-around-the-clock race begins Saturday.
