For race fans who can’t wait for the 12 Hours of Sebring, a quick trip to Daytona International Speedway will provide a fix until the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship arrives in Sebring. Gates for the Rolex 24 At Daytona officially open today, with the race itself taking place Saturday and Sunday.

The Rolex 24 features a star-studded collection of drivers, such as NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, WEC LMP1 champion Brendan Hartley, IndyCar stars James Hinchcliffe, Scott Dixon, Graham Rayhall, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Tony Kanaan, along with others. Olympic gold medalist swimmer Tyler Clary will be competing in Friday’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race, but the twice-around-the-clock race is definitely the big attraction.
