Taking the World to School


IndyCar shoes are "the best drivers in the world!" Alright, perhaps overstating the case, in some respects, but they are hardcore badasses, nonetheless—no question. And, apparently, well enough thought of that they're routinely sought out for a gaggle of rides in the venerable Rolex 24 at Daytona Grand-Am race, each January. 

This year is no exception. An amateurish tally says there are no less than 27 drivers in this year's field that have some sort of connection to IndyCar—from past ChampCar pilots, like Jan Heylen, to Mazda Road to Indy ladder climbers, such as Spencer Pigot.

So... if you find yourself idle, this weekend, park yourself in front of the box and watch the superstars, below, take the rest of the world to school. Coverage begins at 3:00 PM ET, Saturday the 26th, on SPEED. And you can get full deets on who's driving what, HERE.
