    for those who like sports car racing, Rolex 24 at Daytona FL begins Saturday afternoon and is televised in USA; different live segments on NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports App. Dunno if any Camaros in field but there are a few Corvettes. The quickest road course driver in CUP these days has been Chase Elliott and he's slated to run this Rolex 24.

    GM entries are Corvette and Cadillac. No Ford or Chrysler (now Stellantis) products.

    Nice fireworks display even while the race is running full tilt. Never quite understand the different classes of cars running at the same time. Take a pretty good car to run full blast for 24 hours though.

    Dumb question. Do these cars run a geared transmission? Some sort of automatic deal? Hearing a whole lot of shifting.

    Pretty impressive transmission deal there. That 31 car got back out and Elliot got a bunch of practice laps with it. Can't imagine 24 hours of full blast racing. New Corvettes finished 1 and 2 in that class.
