2021 Daytona 24 Hours - 24 Hour Report

 Just time for a quick update right now before real life beckons, but wow. While catching the #10 Wayne Taylor Racing Acura the #01 Chip Ganassi Racing Cadillac suffered a flat tire with about eight minutes to go, leaving the WTR Acura to trot to the line for WTR's third straight Daytona 24 Hour win. Era Motorsport won the LMP2 class with the #18 "crayon car", Riley Motorsports won LMP3 with the #74 car, the Corvettes swept GTLM, with the #3 leading the #4 home, and the Winward Racing #57 Mercedes led a 1-2 Mercedes sweep with the #75 Sun Energy 1 car in 2nd (we'll mostly gloss over the fact that I gave both of those cars 100 to 1 odds to win...). OH, and Wayne Taylor just dropped an F-bomb from Victory Lane. What a day.

I'll have more later, with the Blogathon Pick 'Em final standings.
