The Green Machine comes home fifth

Richard Lietz crossed the finish line for Magnus Racing today at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in fifth place. For most of the final hour, we ran in fourth ahead of the Stevenson Camaro and were stretching our fuel milage as far as we could go. As it turned out, we stretched it too far and Richard had to come in for a splash of fuel with only a couple of laps remaining, handing over fourth. But, with as much bad luck as we had throughout the race, we are thrilled with fifth. It's great start for Magnus Racing and a great start to the 2010 GRAND-AM season.

Last Hour

We run in sixth having done our final stop. We put Richard in for the final stint. Fifth is the Nonnamaker RX-8, which Richard is catching, and fourth is the Camaro, which we believe will  have to stop one  more time.

Less than two hours to go

Jeroen is in and is chasing the Stevenson Camaro with Jan Magnusses at the wheel. The two cars aren't far behind the fourth-placed Nonnamaker RX-8. The battle for fourth in GT is the best on the track.

Craig came out of the car after his stint totally amped - those of you who know Craig know what I'm talking about - and said the car was definitely feeling 24 hours of use but, all things considered, felt very fast. With an hour and forty five minutes remaining, anything can happen!

Almost at 20 Hours

We can see light at the end of the tunnel...which is interesting because we can't see any light from the sun. Richard is catching one of the RX-8s and then he'll be chasing the M6. When he wraps up his stint, John will go back in and then Craig is likely to finish up the race, although there may be time for Jeroen to finish as well. We could make it out of this race with a sixth!
