The one-two sweep of qualifying was the first for CGRFS in the Rolex 24 At Daytona since joining the series in 2004.

The No. 02 Target/TELMEX BMW was not able to participate in the first practice session of the day due a steering column problem.
Juan Pablo Montoya spent eight minutes in the No.01 in the first practice session and set the fastest lap time. He was happy with the handling of the car and will not spend any more time in it until race day.

The 51st Rolex 24 At Daytona starts Saturday, January 26th at DIS and will air LIVE on SPEED (3:30 PM ET).
