It was a tough weekend at Daytona for our Utah drivers. In Friday’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Christopher Stone’s No. 43 Murillo Racing Porsche Cayman was out early, completing only 32 of 105 laps and finishing 36th overall and 19th in the ST class after debris hit their car while running in the top 10.
Tough weekend at Daytona for Utah Racers
In Saturday’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, Madison Snow’s No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3 overcame early technical problems, and very rainy nighttime hours, to finish 24th overall and seventh in the very competitive GTD class. Gunnar Jeannette, co-driving the No. 50 Riley Motorsports/WeatherTech Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3, suffered heartbreak after leading the class early when his co-driver crashed in the rainy conditions during the night, finishing 48th overall and 21st in the GTD class.
Better luck next time, guys!
