The Rolex 24 at Daytona is the season-opening endurance race for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship on Jan. 28-29. This year Cadillac will be competing in the DPi class which is a prototype class.
Gordon’s only experience in the 24-hour race came back in 2007 when he raced with the Wayne Taylor Racing. Gordon drove the number 10 Pontiac Riley Daytona Prototype with Wayne Taylor, Jan Magnussen and Angelelli. The team took a third-place finish in the DP class.
This year Cadillac has debuted a brand new factory effort for the DPi class for the WeatherTech series. Gordon says, “When I announced I would no longer be competing full-time in NASCAR Spring Cup Series, my hope was that I would get an opportunity like this to compete again in such a prestigious event with Konica Minolta and Wayne Taylor Racing.”
