A Comptech/Honda-powered Daytona Prototype is set to make its Grand Am Rolex Series debut in Verizon Festival of Speed at Laguna Seca later this month
Jordan Taylor and Jared Beyer are entered in the #5 Beyer Racing Lennox Comptech/Honda Riley in the race, which will see the car run alongside the Pontiac Riley entered for Ricky Taylor and Mike Forest.
"We did a shakedown run at Infineon Raceway, where we did about 30 laps to make sure everything was running," Jordan Taylor, 17-year-old son of two-time Rolex 24 At Daytona winner Wayne Taylor, said. "We didn't have any problems with the shakedown, so we're looking forward to getting back out there at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and getting more laps in it."
Team owner Jeff Beyer hopes to run the Comptech/Honda-powered Daytona Prototype in eight races this season.
"We're looking at the future," he said. "This is only the start of our programme. Bill Margraf has helped with the Comptech/Honda engine, and we are looking forward to making the car competitive."
