Today’s WeatherTech Sports Car Championship race may have ended in sadness for one team, but for others, it was an epic win in the heat. Fortunately, celebratory champagne is cool. Here’s a few shots of the winners hoping to enjoy some of that cool bubbly on the podium.
Brothers Jordan and Ricky Taylor dominated much of end of the race, driving the No. 10 Daytona Prototype to an overall win. Team owner and dad Wayne Taylor joined them on the podium with a guitar, of course.
That’s a great start to Ricky’s day, given that he’s about to hop into the Larbre Competition Corvette and race in the World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas.
The day couldn’t have gone any better for the Porsche factory team, either. The No. 912 and No. 911 took home a 1-2 finish for the team.
Many, many celebrations were had.
Like Ricky, our day’s not done, either. We’ll be here all night watching the Le Mans cars take the track for the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas, too.
