  24 Hours of Daytona - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Rolex 24 at Daytona is an sports car endurance race held annually at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Also, it is roughly the half of the distance the 24 Hours of Le Mans winners covered at that time, but similar to the Sebring 12 Hours which is also in Florida and hosted a few weeks later.
Thus, the Daytona race was styled since 1966 after the even more famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race itself.

We were treated to an afternoon of first round qualifying for all classes for the Rolex 24 Hours, and the conditions were downright dodgy.
