Toyota Racing has announced that Kyle Busch will compete in next year’s 24 hour endurance race, Rolex 24, at Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 25-26. Busch will be driving the Lexus RC F GT3 for AIM Vasser Sullivan. Busch said,
I’d like to thank everyone at Lexus Motorsports and AIM Vasser Sullivan and Toyota for this opportunity. To have the chance to run in such an iconic race as the Rolex 24 is certainly something I’ve thought about and wanted to do. My partnership with Toyota and the history we’ve had together has been incredible. I would love to continue that history and maybe get my Daytona Rolex to add to my trophy collection.
This will be Busch’s debut in the Rolex 24 and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. He will compete in the GTD class.
Several NASCAR drivers have competed in the event, including Dale Earnhardt, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson, and Tony Stewart, among others.
