ROLEX 24 RETRO: Wheldon’s 2006 win

Dan Wheldon’s legend may have been built with two Indy 500 wins at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but nestled between those achievements, “Lionheart” also added to his lore on the high banks of Daytona.
In a life dedicated to open-wheel racing, Wheldon also added four Grand-Am Rolex Series races to his resume, competing at the Rolex 24 At Daytona from 2005-2008, and with his victory in the 2006 event alongside Ganassi teammates Scott Dixon and Casey Mears, the Englishman joined an exclusive club of driver to win both of the great American races.
