Roar!

No, not the Katy Perry song. It’s the Roar Before the Rolex 24! In other words, the off-season is over. We are back to racing. The Rolex 24 at Daytona is the opening race of the season for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship (which, as of 2014, is the new sports car racing series, combining […]
