The 24 Hours of Daytona, a prestigious opening round 

A total of 50 cars and a star-studded line-up of drivers that includes champions and race winners from NASCAR, Formula 1 (such as Fernando Alonso), open-wheel, and international sports car competition will take to the track for the 56th running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona (where many teams involved are equipped by BMC) on January 27-28.

The opening race of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup begins on FOX at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 27 and includes complete domestic streaming throughout the 24 hours on FOX Sports GO. International, flag-to-flag coverage is available on IMSA.com and a variety of international television outlets (including Eurosport), as well as IMSA Radio commentary on RadioLeMans.com and SiriusXM Radio. Drivers representing every continent except Antarctica — and a total of 25 countries in all — have been entered to drive one of the 50 cars on this year’s Rolex 24 entry list.
