Last year’s race was the shortest in Rolex 24 history, with rain shortening the event to just 593 laps. That allowed the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Cadillac DPi team to claim victory, and the No. 10 Cadillac team again is among the favorites to win Daytona in 2020. They’ll get another push from the Team Penske Acuras, and if Mazda Team Joest can avoid the mechanical issues they had last year, both of its cars will be contenders.Speaking of those Mazdas, Olivier Pla set the unofficial course record in the the No. 77 during the Roar Before the Rolex 24 earlier this month. Then Oliver Jarvis ran the fastest lap in qualifying to put the No. 77 on the pole for the 2020 Rolex 24 at Daytona.Can @MazdaRacing maintain record-breaking pace for 24 hours [email protected] Driver of the No. 77 set the unofficial course record recently at the Roar Before the Rolex 24.Find out on January 25th at 1:30 PM on the @nbc network!#IMSA / #MazdaMotorsports / #Rolex24— IMSA (@IMSA) January 20, 2020A notable name from the NASCAR world has been added to the field for the 2020 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
