Friday Track Update From Rolex 24 Hours Of Daytona

January 26, 2007, Daytona, FL:  

Friday was an uneventful day. Chris' # 7 Kleeneze car was idle in the morning session for an engine change. In the afternoon, Tomas Enge and Chris exercised the car one last time before the green flag on Saturday.  Chris ran times matching Tomas and faster than he'd gone all weekend. With 25 laps now under his belt, Chris is getting to know the car and learning to read the traffic.

At 1:30 PM (Fox Sports coverage begins at 1;00), 73 cars will take the green flag for the 45th running of the Rolex 24 Hours.  Chris will run in the number 2 spot and take over from Tomas at about 2:30-3:00 PM (at 2:30 Speed TV takes over coverage).  Chris should be in the car every 3 hours after that. Sunday morning coverage begins at 6:00 AM and runs to the checkered flag at 1:30 PM on SpeedTV. There is a total of 15 hours of coverage.

The TV schedule for this weekend's Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona is at:
