Default 2020 Rolex 24!

Yes, it's that time of year again! When a few of us are interested in the 58th annual Sporty Car Race at Daytona, aka the "Rolex 24", and the rest of the roundy-rounders presumably move on to the next thread (and no offense taken).

The starting time is listed as 1:40pm on Saturday, January 25, and unless something unusual happens, like say, rain (!?), or water in the gasoline, or Trump's hair blows the wrong way in the wind, it probably will end on Sunday @ 1:40pm.

The new C8 Corvette race cars will be there, and it will be the first time that many have actually seen the car, due to a UAW strike among other factors.

One would think they would be happy to work building automobiles in the USA period, but apparently not so much.

The sound of the car will be more Ferrari like due to it's flat plane crank and related firing order:

So, who is in this year? Our resident authority, Joe Jacalone? Bones? Garrity? Mr. Infield Party??

Got my tickets today.

I wish I could go, but I will be out of town.
If I ever had stupid money, I would be IN the Rolex 24!
