Terry Borcheller is ready for a late-night Rolex Sports Car Series race at Daytona International Speedway. The Paul Revere 250 is set to follow NASCAR Winston Cup qualifying on July 3, part of the U.S. Fourth of July celebration in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Borcheller, of Phoenix, and Forest Barber of Fort Worth, Tex., will race the No. 54 Bell Motorsports Doran JE4 in the two-hour 45-minute race, scheduled to start at 11 pm on the 3.56-mile Daytona infield road course. In a change from the team's usual strategy, Barber will qualify and start the race, and Borcheller will drive the final stint.
"The championship points chase has tightened nicely, and we're looking forward to maintaining our moment from Mid-Ohio [Sports Car Course]," Borcheller said, referring to the pair's two victories last weekend. "We were fastest in the night practice here, which is closest to race conditions, so we're looking forward to a great race."
"We'll race directly after Winston Cup qualifying, which means the grandstands will be full," Borcheller noted. "It's usually a packed house. That's very exciting, not just for the competitors, but also for our sponsors."
His sponsors include K&N Performance Filters, Infinity2 Nutrition, Dark Dog, Alpinestars, Bell Helmets, Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, Gatorz Eyewear and Goodyear.
The Rolex Sports Car Series race will start 10 minutes after NASCAR Winston Cup qualifying, about 11 pm on Thursday, July 3. The race will be held on the 3.56-mile Daytona International Speedway infield road course in Daytona Beach, Fla.
The race will be telecast on SPEED Channel on Friday, July 4 at 3 pm.
