DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Scott Pruett has a chance to stand alone atop the Daytona record books. To pull off the feat, he will have to win with an unfamiliar group.
Pruett goes into the prestigious Rolex 24 at Daytona attempting to claim a record sixth overall victory. He is currently tied with Hurley Haywood with five overall wins.
But he is in an unfamiliar environment since parting ways with Chip Ganassi Racing after 12 years. He will race in the twice-round-the-clock endurance race for Action Express Racing, a team that claimed overall victory in 2014, then won Sebring and Petit Le Mans last season.
For Pruett, taking the job wasn't necessarily about breaking Haywood's record. He viewed it as the best available seat in a year of transition for Pruett.
