Rolex 24 at Daytona

2/4/2001

Thanks to an exhibition race in Japan in 1998, the IROC Series in 1999, and a full season of NASCAR Sprint Cup activity in 2000, Dale Jr. had many chances to race against his father. Now it was time to race with him. The two Earnhardts teamed up with Andy Pilgrim and Kelly Collins to drive a Chevrolet Corvette in the 2001 Rolex 24 at Daytona. The group finished fourth overall and second in class in what was Junior's first and only sports car race to date.
