Team overcomes loose front wheel bearing in tenth hour

Daytona Beach, Fla -- January 31, 2004 After ten and one half hours, the #24 Cauley Corvette GTR presented by Highlander continues its run at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.

"Right now, the car is very good," said crew chief, Danny Kellermeyer. "We've had a few minor ups and downs-- but all-in-all, we're quite pleased. A power steering belt let go in the first hour and just after the eighth hour we had a front wheel bearing loosen on us. But the guys did a great job getting the car back on the track and everything appears to be pretty sound."

"The drivers have been extremely consistent," continued Kellermeyer. "They've all done a great job of keeping their lap times in our speed window and have been very easy on the car. Their lap times have been extremely close throughout each stint.."

"There is a lot of racing left, so hopefully all of our problems are behind us," he added. "We're a little off on our fuel mileage, so we'll need to keep a close eye on that-- but, I think we're settling in to a good pace."

The team is currently running 17th in class and 42nd overall.

The #24 Cauley Corvette GTR presented by The Highlander will compete in the GT Class of Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series for the 2004 Rolex 24 at Daytona. The race will start Saturday, January 31 at 1 p.m. ETD and end Sunday, February 1 at 1 p.m. ETD. The race will air on SPEED Channel.
