TRG Porsches Running 4th, 13th, 19th and 23rd at 18 Hours in Daytona

Daytona Beach, Florida m- TRG's four Porsches are currently running in 4th, 13th, 17th and 23rd, in the 44th running of the Grand American Rolex Series presented by Crown Royal Reserve Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Robert Nearn was nominated to drive the early stint this morning. "The car is going quite well after the tough time we had in practice and qualifying. We have really only had one problem and that was with some contact and a bent wheel. We will keep the wheels turning and see how high we can climb, hopefully onto the podium." The number 66 is currently in fourth.

Pat Flanagan had the grave yard shift behind the wheel of the number 67. "There is a lot of dust and debris in the Bus Stop as their usually is at this time of the race. The car has been really consistent for us all race. In the last third of my stint the transmission began to go, so we decided to pull it in and change it, other than that we have been strong." The number 67 Porsche is running in 13th.

Jim Pace took the number 68 into the early morning. "The car is just fine. After the repairs we had to make, there is no reason to go out there and try to break lap records. We are running our pace and have adjusted our goal to make the checker." The number 68 car is in 19th place.

The number 69 car has been withdrawn due to damage and remains in 23rd place.
