ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (January 31, 2001)^×This coming weekend, the Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship will once again be well represented at North America's premier endurance race, the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

When the 79-car field takes the green at 1 p.m. on Saturday, nine Zetec Championship alumni will be contesting the twice around the clock classic.

In the Sports Racer Prototype class, the fastest cars on track, four former Zetec Championship drivers will be vying for the overall win.

Racing in the GT and GTS class are Mike Borkowski in the No. 43 Orbit Racing Porsche GT3 R and Joey Scarallo in the No. 12 K&N Filters Racing Ultima GTR respectively. In years past, these classes have provided some of the most excitement in the race.
