Some notes ahead of the Saturday race start:
--All three Michael Shank Racing groups are ready to go today for the 49th running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona. After not getting everything the team was hoping for in Thursday's qualifying session, some hard work from the team and drivers has unlocked additional speed as well as all-important ease of driving for the three entries.
--Thank you to all the team partners who have committed to establishing the support required to make this kind of effort: Crown Royal, Rocky Fork, UBS, PVA.org, Curb Records, Continental Tire, Johnnie Walker, Ford Racing, and Richard Petty Motorsports.
