Update: Michael Waltrip Racing owners Rob Kauffman and Michael Waltrip announced they will race in the 51st annual Rolex 24 at Daytona on Jan. 26-27. Joining the pair behind the wheel of the Grand-Am version of the Ferrari 458 GT that will test in Daytona this weekend will be NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Bowyer and road racing veteran Rui Aguas, Michael Waltrip Racing PR reports.
Recommendation: MWR and AF Corse are entering a joint venture to field a car in the upcoming Rolex 24. Bowyer will get his first action in this prestigious endurance race. The MWR star performed well on the NASCAR road circuits last season, so he should be a real asset to this team in his first Grand-Am start.
