DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Chip Ganassi hopes to improve on last year's 24-hour race at Daytona International Speedway.
It hardly seems possible. Ganassi's two-car team finished first and second in the twice-around-the-clock event, sweeping the prestigious endurance race at the hallowed track.
Two-time defending Grand-Am champions Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas, along with Joey Hand and Graham Rahal, ended up in Victory Lane after a one-lap sprint to the checkered flag. IndyCar stars Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti and NASCAR drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Jamie McMurray celebrated alongside them after settling for second.
Pruett's team will try to repeat when the 24-hour race begins Saturday afternoon. Dixon's crew will try to flip the script.
Ganassi says it's going to be tough to top last year's race, but adds it could happen.
