Porsche 911 GT3 Cup teams in the thick of the Rolex 24 GT fight after 5-1/2 hours
The group’s Racing for Children’s fundraising events during the weekend include a dinner, silent and live auctions, and sponsorship of the colorful handprints that cover the Brumos racecar.
Although the Brumos crew kept the car out of the garage, making the complex repair quickly, the #59 lost several laps.
The trio of drivers that put the #59 on the podium last year at Daytona - Andrew Davis, Leh Keen and Marc Lieb – will return.
Their 10th place finish for the Porsche 250 puts Brumos in 5th place in the Rolex Series GT team standings.
