Donohue Wins Rolex 24 Race

By  | 

David Donohue has won the Rolex 24 to end Chip Ganassi Racing's Daytona winning streak at three races and match his late father's victory here 40 years ago.

Donohue held on for the victory Sunday after passing Juan Pablo
Montoya for the lead just 41 minutes from the finish.

Donohue, who started from the pole in the Brumos Porsche Riley
on Saturday afternoon, combined with former Indianapolis 500 winner
Buddy Rice, Antonio Garcia and Darren Law to win the closest race
in the 47-year history of 24-hour classic at Daytona International

Four of the sleek prototypes finished on the lead lap - the most
ever - and the quartet spent most of the last two hours nearly
nose-to-tail on the 3.56-mile road course.
