    2010 Daytona 24 Hours (Jan 30 - 31)

    This weekend the first major endurance race of the season will kick off; the Daytona 24 Hours. Part of the GrandAm series, it's open to GT and Daytona Prototype cars. The cars may not be the most pleasing to look at, many of them are manned by some of today's finest drivers. It will be the final Daytona 24 Hours for the legendary Hurley Haywood, who won the race more times than any other driver.

    Our friends at SpeedTV.com have drafted up detailed previews for both classes:

    GTs: AUTO-RACING - ROLEX 24: GT Preview - SPEEDtv.com

    DPs: AUTO-RACING - ROLEX 24: DP Preview - SPEEDtv.com

    Grand Marshall of the race, Vic Elford, will lead the classic cars in the Porsche 907 he won the 1968 edition of the race with. That was the first ever outright win in a blue ribbon endurance race for Porsche. More on that here: AUTO-RACING - ROLEX 24: Elford's Porsche Leads Heritage Expo - SPEEDtv.com

    Large portions of the race will be aired live on Speed.

    I'm so excited! GAINSCO is going to win.

    Although I'll be cheering for the #9 Action Express DP(Joao Barbosa is a friend of mine), I'm picking #6 from MSR to win. In GT, I'll take the #70 SpeedSource Mazda. In friday's Continental Tire challenge, any of the Camaros.

    Notice a trend? all Riley built chassis's

    I don't follow Grand-Am too much during the off season but i saw some surprises looking thru the spotter's guide. The GTO-R is still hangin around even tho it's far less superior than the GXP-R. Stevenson Motorsports is taking a gamble and switched to the new Camaro instead of stayin w/ their fast Pontiacs. And Flying Lizard has a Porsche entry, which nice to see b/c they're expanding into more than just ALMS.

    The GXP-R is basically under the new Camaro's skin.

    last yr a team tried to stream and SPEED shut them down for copyright reasons. As for the GXP-R under the Camaro skin, the Camaro doesn't look aerodynamic at all, it'll be interesting to see if the Porsche's run away on the oval again
