When the checkered flag dropped on Sunday afternoon after the 55th Rolex 24 At Daytona, two drivers found themselves breaking a race record that dates back more than 30 years.
Michael de Quesada, co-driver of the No. 28 Alegra Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R, and Patricio O’Ward, in the No. 38 Performance Tech ORECA FLM09, won in GT Daytona and Prototype Challenge, respectively. De Quesada is 17 years, 92 days old, while O’Ward is 17 years, 268 days old, and both smashed the record for the youngest driver to win the Rolex 24 At Daytona.
