For Ricky Taylor, 2017 already has been a pretty good year.
In January, the eldest son of team owner Wayne Taylor co-drove the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R to victory in the 55th Rolex 24 At Daytona alongside his brother, Jordan, longtime family friend and mentor Max Angelelli, and four-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon.
There was a lot riding on this year’s Rolex 24. It was the debut race for Daytona Prototype international (DPi) and LM P2 Prototypes, and everybody in the field wanted to be the first to win in the new car.
