Cindric, the NASCAR Xfinity Series champion in 2020 and a rookie in the Cup Series with Team Penske this year, is no stranger to IMSA racing. The 22-year-old competed in 16 Michelin Pilot Challenge races with two wins and has six WeatherTech Championship races to his credit.

For Burton, the 21-year-old driver of the Wood Brothers Racing Ford in NASCAR and the son of former NASCAR driver and current NBC Sports race analyst Jeff Burton, it will be a new experience on Daytona’s 3.56-mile track.

I’ve had these conversations with my friends at Ford and the Wood Brothers and Penske. The only thing I wanted to work on to get better was (to) be a better road racer, Harrison Burton said. To have the opportunity to do that right away is amazing and credit to them for their dedication to helping me get better That’s really all a driver can ask for.

The drivers have the blessings of their teams to leave their normal workspaces to participate in Daytona.

We want to be flexible, said Walter Czarnecki, Vice President of Team Penske. We want to give them opportunities to expand their skills.

The foursome will have plenty of time for this at Daytona. It started Friday with three days of testing for both IMSA series in the Roar Before the Rolex 24. In Friday’s second session, Cindric was seventh out of 30 cars in the Grand Sport (GS) class with a lap of 1 minute and 54.027 seconds. (112.394 mph), while Briscoe was 12th at 1:54.367 (112.060 mph).

That’s one thing I’ve really pinned down and said for this 2022 year that I just need to get as much seat time as possible, whether it’s in dirt, circle track stuff, whatever I can ride, said Deegan, 20, returning to David Gilliland Racing for a second truck season in 22. I just want to join in and get more experience and I feel like there is something I can improve I can improve a lot of things but I feel like one thing is really going to come more in the NASCAR world are road racing. I feel that being able to race on any type of road course, I think, will only make me better as a driver.

It will be a reunion for Deegan and Briscoe, who shared a Mustang for the 2020 Daytona race. Briscoe, who is driving for Stewart-Haas Racing in the Cup Series this season, is looking forward to sitting down and seeing how Deegan has improved in the two years since they rode together.

The last time we were there was the first time a barn had ever run anything on a road course, said Briscoe, 27. To go back with her, she’s probably done three or four truck races now (on road courses) and has ran some other IMSA stuff so it will be nice to see her improvement as a race car driver.

She’s doing a really good job in a lot of different disciplines, and it’s going to be fun to go there and do a totally new discipline for both of us and go there and just have a good time.

When the Michelin Pilot Challenge race is over, the race stops for three of the drivers. Not so for Cindric, who will make his fourth start in the Rolex 24, this time alongside Dirk Mueller and Patrick Assenheimer in the No. 15 Mercedes. Cindric has a clear goal in mind.

I have a very strong desire to win the Rolex 24 and that is my motivating factor to do this race, said Cindric, who won Beef last February. It’s what for dinner. 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race. I’ve worked really hard every season to try to make something happen, not to get into a lineup of five drivers, just to go and do the race and experience it. I’ve done all that a little bit.

I would say the Rolex is probably the most realistic race I can look at and I would love to win that race. I think this is a great opportunity for me to do that or at least my abilities to do that, and, as I said, against a group of drivers who are incredibly talented, incredibly experienced in their cars.

GTD PRO is just that a class based on professional drivers. Most cars have factory support. In a way, Cindric says, this Rolex 24 will reflect what he will encounter as a NASCAR Cup Series rookie taking on the best professional drivers.

When you’re in GTD PRO you look at the entry list and my jaw dropped, Cindric said, so I’m excited for that challenge.

Once the checkered flag falls on the Rolex 24. At DAYTONA, the World Center of Racing will focus on DAYTONA Speedweeks presented by AdventHealth (February 15-20) and the 64e Annual DAYTONA 500.
