While some of us are still dealing with lake-effect snow and long johns, winter vacation is over at Daytona International Speedway. Friday, Daytona will come to life with the KONI Challenge Fresh From Florida 200 to begin the 2008 season. For Randy it means a return to the KONI Challenge and a new and exciting partnership with APR Motorsports in the #181 Volkswagen GTI. The three hour race begins Friday at 2:15 EST and ends hopefully with Randy and his co-driver Mark White on top the podium with his teammates from cars #171 and #191 on each side.

Saturday at 1:30, the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series will begin its 2008 season with its most prestigious and grueling event, the Rolex 24 At Daytona. Randy, who has won this race in 2001 and 2006, will go for a three-peat in the Stevenson Motorsports Pontiac GXP.R #57 with co-drivers Robin Liddell, Andrew Davis and Gunnar Jeannette.
