The 2019 season kicked off in Daytona, Florida for the annual IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship test, the Roar before the Rolex 24. Just two short weeks later, the SGM team returned to Daytona Beach for the Rolex 24 Hours At Daytona. A grueling 24 hours of racing took place on track but also saw PR representatives fighting sleep to ensure continual coverage of all the on and off track happenings.
