Rolex 24 Hours Journal


Before covering the Rolex 24 Hours at the Daytona International Speedway, it took a lot for me to get to this point staying awake 30 hours if you consider these factors.

First, I successfully covered the 12-Hours of Sebring at the Sebring Raceway and was getting familiar with endurance racing. I found that this type of racing is more about the manufacturers and the stamina about the drivers. There is so much money involved, and it’s a good way to see the durability of the vehicles.

Finally, I sought advice from Graham Goodwin, who has covered 89 of these 24 hour races.

I was definitely ready for this challenge and decided to write a journal tracking what would be my biggest accomplishment in Sports Media. If there is one thing I would do differently, it was bringing my small digital camera to take unique photos at different times.

In my lifetime, I’ve done a lot of endurance drives across the USA.

I hope you enjoy this story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
