Rolex 24 Daytona Beach
The Rolex 24 Daytona Beach is a 24-hour sports car endurance race held at the Daytona International Speedway. The race is held on a 3.56 mile combined road course, using parts of the NASCAR tri-oval and an infield road course. The purpose of the event is to see which team of drivers can take their sports car the farthest in a fixed time period, rather than the shortest time over a fixed distance as in most auto races. Since the race started it has been held the last weekend in January or the first weekend in February and is the first major race of every year. The race has changed names many times over the years but since 1991 it has been named for its current sponsor, Rolex. Winning drivers of this race receive a steel Rolex Cosmograph watch.
