The breakthrough victory in the Autohaus Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro came in the hometown of auto racing pioneer Wendell Scott, the only black driver to win NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
In the overall and Daytona Prototype class, the Action Express Racing trio of Joao Barbosa, Terry Borcheller and JC France won in a Porsche/Riley, ending the six-race winning streak of reigning series champions Scott Pruett and Memo Rojas from Chip Ganassi Racing. Action Express earned a $25,000 ``bounty'' available to any team stopping the Pruett-Rojas winning streak.
Pruett and Rojas finished second.
