Attrition is the Name of Daytona's 24 Hour Game

We're almost at the halfway point in Daytona, and the cars are starting to feel the pain as per usual: the Ganassi 02 (broken gearbox), and Krohn 76 (smoking something or other) both into the garages now. At this point we've only got 5 cars on the lead lap, but what a 5 cars it is, Allan McNish and A.J. Allemendinger are putting on one heck of a battle, you'd think this thing was in the final laps the way they are fighting for the lead.

If we could get a couple yellow flags some other cars (Action Express, Starworks, Spirit of Daytona) may be able to catch up, but certainly not without any yellow, and with both Audi's being towed off the course, we've lost our primary sources of yellow flags.

Then in the GT class we're down to 3 Porsche's on the lead lap, but again yellow could change the game as a Mazda, two Camaros and a Ferrari are just one lap back. still 12 hours and 15 minutes to go, a lot can happen folks.
