Tomorrow at 12PM EST is the start of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. I know that in the US NASCAR is much more popular that pretty much any other sort of racing. With that said, NASCAR fans should watch because some of your favorite drivers are in the event.
“No less than nine full-time NASCAR NEXTEL Cup stars are slated to drive Daytona Prototypes in the season-opening Rolex 24, February 3 – 6, and six of them were in action Friday as three-day testing got underway on the 3.56-mile Daytona road course.
Reigning NEXTEL Cup champion Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Casey Mears, Jamie McMurray and brothers Bobby and Terry Labonte will all drive top-of-the-line Daytona Prototypes in the 43rd annual running of North America’s premier endurance race. Busch, Kenseth, Biffle, Mears, McMurray and the Labonte brothers all got behind the wheel Friday, some strapping into a Daytona Prototype for the very first time. Stewart will miss testing this weekend while he competes in the Chili Bowl midget race and Johnson is scheduled to arrive on Sunday.” [Source: RacingOne]
