IMSA WeatherTech Sportcar team owner Wayne Taylor described his team’s win at the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday as very, very special.
The No.10 Konica Minolta Acura ARX-05 took victory with Filipe Albuquerque, Helio Castroneves, Ricky Taylor, and Alexander Rossi. It was the first Acura win for Wayne Taylor Racing who announced last year that they would enter the 2021 season with Acura and the team’s fourth win in five years.
Speaking about the win, Wayne Taylor said:
“I could probably tell you that today was one of the best days I’ve ever had. “It was a very, very special day.” It’s hard to say I could top what happened in 2017 when I won with both of my kids, but today we won it with Ricky, Jordan won the GT class for Corvette, and Wayne Taylor Racing program won it overall. … It’s given me a new lease on life. Quite honestly, I was getting bored.
Taylor went on to say:
We had fun. “It was just fantastic. Everywhere we went, we were so focused on going to win this race, and that’s what we did.” I knew (HPD) wanted me because they felt I must have some golden secret about how to win Daytona, which I didn’t,. “Winning it today after only having these cars for two and a half months is a testament to the people I’ve hired and the people who work for this organization. I’m eternally grateful for all of them
