2008 Pole winner set to defend 2012 Rolex 24 at Daytona race victory with Michael Shank Racing.
Pataskala, Ohio – 2012 Rolex 24 At Daytona Champion Ozz Negri got some welcome news this weekend as the Brazilian star has been cleared to drive in the 2013 Rolex 24 At Daytona. Negri suffered a lower leg injury while training on a mountain bike and was sidelined for the opening test of the 2013 GRAND-AM season.
“I’m really excited to get the news that I’ll be able to drive again in the 24-the idea of not getting to was just too much to think about!” said Negri, who is an active triathlete. “I am not sure how much time I will be driving, we will just have to see how it goes and make a decision. It’s very important to not jeopardize the team’s result. That is the main concern. A big thanks to Marcos for coming on board to help us out, we are incredibly lucky to have a guy like that join us.”
