“To win what is my first race in America, at Daytona, which is such a legendary venue, is absolutely fantastic. We obviously came here with that ambition but knew it would be very hard to execute but we did it and in a dominant style.
“It was a clean run apart from a puncture four hours or so into the race, caused by debris, and then we changed the car’s nose, again due to debris. I did around six stints with quite a bit of driving in the night which I enjoyed. It’s a great way to start 2020 and hopefully leads to more drives in IMSA.”
“I’m the only American racing rookie here, this is my first time to Daytona,” Newey said. “It looks like a simple track on paper, but there are a lot of nuances that could cost you a lot of time. All these guys really brought me up to speed and got me comfortable. There were no secrets, and I think that’s what put us on the top step.” sportscarchampionship.imsa.com
