DAYTONA BEACH, Florida – IMSA’s annual Daytona 24 Hour event goes green this weekend with a record low of 38 entries for the twice-around-the-clock race.  While mostly sunny skies are expected for the race itself, the forecast is calling for excuses to rain upon the circuit through the week leading up to the green flag on Saturday afternoon.  “Look for the ‘quality vs quantity’ excuse to sweep through early in the week with a high chance of ‘we can’t control where the teams want to spend their money, this is an expensive race’ leading up to the qualifying sessions on Thursday afternoon,” said chief meteorologist Larry Hayden.

We suggest fans pack layers for the many different types of excuses that could come and never walk too far from your umbrella, especially if you’re camping near the paddock.”
