Welcome to the 2014 motorsport season guys and gals. Starting this Saturday afternoon the 52nd running of the 24 Hours of Daytona will begin. Fox and its affiliates Fox Sports 1 & 2, along with, will be covering the entire event, but there will be layovers between televised race action. As we discussed at the end of last year, Grand-Am and ALMS are out and the IMSA/TUDOR United Sports Car Championship is in; this will be the first race in which these two competing race series merge for the positive longevity of road racing in the US. This should bring a lot more to the race action than we're used to seeing in the US, going forward, and hopefully this first event won't take away from this very special WEC event that we've been following religiously over the past several years. Enjoy your weekends.
