DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Scott Pruett tied Hurley Haywood's record of five Rolex 24 at Daytona victories Sunday, helping Chip Ganassi Racing return to Victory Lane in the prestigious sports car race.
A slight lineup change and a dominating performance in the twice-around-the-clock race earned the No. 01 team another celebratory Rolex watch.
Three-time defending Grand-Am champions Pruett and Memo Rojas, along with NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya and IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball teamed to beat the VelocityWW team by almost 22 seconds.
Montoya won two previous Rolex's with the No. 01. He spent the last three seasons on Ganassi's No. 02 ``star car'' before being moved back to the winning team.
He closed the win for Ganassi by wresting the lead from defending race winner AJ Allmendinger in the final hour.
