DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The UNOH Battle At The Beach, a short-track event held for the first time earlier this year featuring NASCAR’s regional and touring series, will return to Daytona International Speedway during Budweiser Speedweeks 2014 on Tuesday, Feb. 18.

For competitors in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, the 150-lap race will be a championship points event while it will be a non-points 150-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.

“The UNOH Battle At The Beach is a great opportunity for short track racers from around the country to compete on racing’s biggest stage,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “We’re looking forward to some intense competition with two exciting main events.”

In last year’s inaugural UNOH Battle At The Beach NASCAR K&N Pro Series race, Cameron Hayley came from behind during a green-white-checkered finish to capture the victory.  In the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race, NASCAR veteran Steve Park finally earned his first Daytona victory.

Daytona International Speedway has reached an agreement with a number of area hotels to secure special room rates during the UNOH Battle At The Beach to make it more affordable for racers and fans to attend the UNOH Battle At The Beach.

Nov 21 | First TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Test Wraps Up at Daytona

SHARE

The first TUDOR United SportsCar Championship test session at Daytona International Speedway is officially in the books. The two-day test session concluded on Wednesday and featured more than two dozen teams shaking down their cars in advance of the season-opening 52nd anniversary Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 25-26.

IMSA Testing

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The first TUDOR United SportsCar Championship test session at Daytona International Speedway is officially in the books.

The two-day test session concluded on Wednesday and featured more than two dozen teams shaking down their cars in advance of the season-opening 52nd anniversary Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 25-26.

There will be one more official International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) test prior to the Rolex 24 – the Roar Before The Rolex 24 on Jan. 3-5.

This week’s test was the first for the IMSA-sanctioned TUDOR Championship, the result of the merger between the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series and the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón.

During the two days, a total of 5,645 laps, 20,096.2 miles were turned around the 3.56-mile road course.

On Wednesday, officials from IMSA and Continental Tire jointly decided to suspend on-track testing of the TUDOR Championship Prototype (P) and Prototype Challenge (PC) race cars after issues were discovered during test on Tuesday.

On-track testing continued on Wednesday for the GT Le Mans (GTLM) and GT Daytona (GTD) classes as well as the DeltaWing DWC13 prototype – which utilizes a unique tire and technical package.

Fastest of the test: Action Express Racing was the fastest in the Prototype (P) class with a lap of 1 minute, 39.623 seconds in the No. 5 Corvette DP while Performance Tech Motorsports led the PC class with a lap of 1:42.830 by the No. 38 ORECA FLM09/Chevrolet.

In the GTLM class, the No. 93 SRT Motorsports Viper GTS-R was fastest with a lap of 1:46.912 and the No. 63 Scuderia Corse Ferrari 458 topped the GTD class with a lap of 1:48.747.

The DeltaWing DWC13 prototype, being driven by Katherine Legge and Andy Meyrick, posted a fast time of 1:40.883 on Wednesday.

“This test has been wonderful, not only for teams to learn their new cars, but it’s been a great show of support for the GTD class as every single entry is here to participate and show what they’ve got – and all of them are near the top of the charts,” said Andy Lally of Magnus Racing. “We have an extremely competitive class, and it’s neat to see people from both sides of the paddocks that I’ve been racing in for more than one decade on both sides of the fence, together in one happy paddock.”

Special unveil: During the lunch break of the second day of testing on Wednesday, Jim France, the Chairman of IMSA and International Speedway Corporation (ISC), IMSA CEO Ed Bennett and NASCAR President Mike Helton unveiled the IMSA logos added to the signage outside the eight-story International Motorsports Center (IMC).

The IMC building is home to the headquarters for IMSA, NASCAR and ISC.

Sunoco Challenge winner: England’s Bradley Smith, who races the Radical SR3 Challenge in Europe, got his first taste of Daytona International Speedway during this week’s test.

The 22-year-old Smith, who earned a driver’s seat in a to-be-named Daytona Prototype for the upcoming Rolex 24 through the Sunoco Challenge program, tested in an Action Express Racing DP.

Smith began his testing program for the Rolex 24 on Monday with a tour of the DAYTONA Rising construction project and took some laps around the 3.56-mile road course with sports car veteran Joao Barbosa.

“This car is a lot different from what I’m used to racing,” Smith said. “It’s a beast – a lot more power and grip than what I’m used to. Having three experienced guys like Christian Fittipaldi, Joao Barbosa and Sebastien Bourdais helping me out on my first day has made me feel quite comfortable. They’re a great bunch of guys, and they’ve answered all my questions.

“We managed to end up with a decent time – I ended up two tenths faster than Christian. But I’m sure he would have gone faster if he went back out. I think of myself as the novice here, and to be within a second of their time here is fantastic. There were almost 200 people entered (in the Sunoco Challenge), so to win it was fantastic.”

 

Tickets for the 52nd running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Roar Before The Rolex 24, the three-day test session scheduled for January 3-5, can be purchased online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.

British sports car legend and racing commentator David Hobbs will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 52nd running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 25-26 at Daytona International Speedway – the debut event for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – British sports car legend and racing commentator David Hobbs will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 52nd running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona on January 25-26 at Daytona International Speedway – the debut event for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Pierre Fillon, president of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), will serve as honorary starter and wave the starter’s flag for the Rolex 24 At Daytona. In 2012, Fillon was named the eighth president of the ACO, which created the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1923 and will celebrate its 82nd edition in 2014. The ACO is also the organizer and promoter of the FIA World Endurance Championship and created the American Le Mans Series with ACO partner Don Panoz, European Le Mans Series and Asian Le Mans Series.

Earlier this year, Fillon invited Jim France, Chairman of International Speedway Corporation, to serve as Honorary Starter for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.

 “David Hobbs’ starting command and the waving of the starter’s flag by Pierre Fillon will kick off a new era in North American sports car racing,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “The anticipation for the upcoming Rolex 24 is at an all-time high and we’re looking forward to kicking off the new season with a historic event.”

Hobbs, a versatile driver who competed in many forms of motorsport including sports cars, NASCAR, IndyCar and Formula One, will deliver the starting command “Drivers, start your engines” as Grand Marshal. He joins other racing legends such as Hurley Haywood, A.J. Foyt, Dan Gurney, Vic Elford and Brian Redman in serving as Grand Marshal for the prestigious twice-around-the-clock challenge race.

Inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 2009, Hobbs has competed in many of the world’s biggest races including the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the Daytona 500, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Indianapolis 500.

In the Rolex 24, Hobbs made 11 starts and participated in the inaugural Daytona Continental in 1962 driving a Jaguar. He posted a career-best finish of third in the race in 1971 co-driving a Ferrari with Mark Donohue and in 1984 co-driving with Bob Tullius and Doc Bundy.

Hobbs currently serves as an analyst for NBC Sports Group’s coverage of Formula One. He also appeared in the movie Cars 2 as announcer “David Hobbscap,” a 1963 Jaguar from Hobbs’ actual hometown of Royal Leamington Spa, England.

Tickets for the 52nd running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the Roar Before The Rolex 24, the three-day test session scheduled for January 3-5, can be purchased online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
