Ford Returns to Daytona
The debut of the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Ford GT at the Rolex 24 garnered much interest and anticipation as the Ford GT returns to Daytona. Last year’s Rolex 24 overall winner in the Ford EcoBoost Riley DP, Ganassi Racing moved to the GTLM class with two new Ford GT entries. Both cars ran a strong pace with the front of the GTLM field, with Joey Hand taking the No. 66 Ford GT to third in class at the end of the first hour of racing. Unfortunately both cars encountered gearbox issues that dropped them too far behind to catch up to the front-runners.
