An all-star grid and record-breaking pace at the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona

When the checkered flag waved on Sunday afternoon, the winning car—the #5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R of Joao Barbosa, Filipe Albuquerque, and Christian Fittipaldi had covered a record-breaking distance: 808 laps and 2,876.48 miles (4,629.2km). Such a furious pace is unusual for the Rolex 24; mixed grids and the endurance format often breed incidents and lots of yellow-flag running behind a safety car. But 2018 wasn't like that. There was drama a-plenty, and even some heavy rainfall, but only a handful of cautions made this year a 24-hour sprint for the finish and a sign that, while other racing series might have their problems, the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship is definitely one to keep an eye on this year.
