This past weekend the 2010 North American motorsports season kicked off with the 48th running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The race started under caution after a two hours of torrential rain before the green flag, but the field of prototypes and GTs weathered the storm to make their way around the 3.56-mile, 12-turn course.
Although the rain eventually let up, track conditions remained treacherous and unpredictable for most of the night. The race featured a record 53 lead changes by 29 drivers, and all but two prototypes led at some time. Even after 24 hours the competition remained close, and the eventual winner took the checkered flag by just over 52 seconds.
