"They are a really fun brand so I look forward to taking over for the Rolex 24 hour weekend and giving everyone the behind-the-scenes tweets. I'll do my best to give you before and after stint updates, along with who I'm angry at on track, which during 24 hours, can be many drivers. Hope everyone enjoys the updates."
