DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - One of the top teams in the Rolex 24 at Daytona was knocked out of the event before the first hour.
The SunTrust Racing team headed to the garage with an engine issue 25 minutes into the twice-around-the-clock event at Daytona International Speedway. The team spent five minutes working on the Chevrolet, then briefly returned to the track.
But Max Angelelli was on the track only a few more minutes before taking the car back to the garage for good.
Team owner Wayne Taylor says no one expected a mechanical issue ruining their race. The engines are made by NASCAR's Earnhardt Childress Racing organization.
Angelelli and teammate Ricky Taylor finished second in the Grand-Am Series last season.
