The 24 Hours of Daytona will be the opening round of the Tudor United Sports Car Championship (TUSCC) as well as the first round of the National American Endurance Championship (NAEC).

This year’s 24 Hours of Daytona will kick off on Saturday, January 24 at 11:10 AM PT / 2:10 PM ET.

“We have a strong line-up for Daytona,” said Turner who now enters his 11th year with Aston Martin Racing. “There have been a few rule changes since the last time we raced here. We can now run our low downforce ‘Le Mans’ set up, which will make us more competitive. It’s always a fun event – everyone is itching to get back into their race cars after the Christmas break so let’s hope we can come away from Daytona with a good result to start the year off with.”
