Busch joins AIM Vasser Sullivan for Rolex 24 at Daytona
NASCAR star Kyle Busch will be taking part in the 2020 Rolex 24 at Daytona with AIM Vasser Sullivan, driving the team's Lexus RC F GT3 at the Florida endurance classic.
Lexus Motorsports, AIM Vasser Sullivan and Toyota Racing made the announcement at the annual ‘Motorsports Day’ event for Toyota and Lexus team members held at the Toyota Motor North America headquarters in Plano, Texas.
“I’d like to thank everyone at Lexus Motorsports, AIM Vasser Sullivan and Toyota for this opportunity,” Busch said. “To have the chance to run in such an iconic race as the Rolex 24 is certainly something I’ve thought about and wanted to do.
My partnership with Toyota and the history we’ve had together has been incredible. I would love to continue that history and maybe get my own Daytona Rolex to add to my trophy collection.”
Busch won the NASCAR Cup Series driver’s championship for Toyota in 2015, and holds a combined 207 NASCAR victories in his career. He also holds the record for the most wins in both the Xfinity Series (96) and Gander Outdoors Truck Series (56), as well as scoring the most wins of any Toyota driver with 186 victories across all three series. He will be making his debut in both the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship and the Rolex 24.
“We’re thrilled to have a racer of Kyle’s caliber join AIM Vasser Sullivan to open our 2020 season at the Rolex 24 at Daytona,” said Jimmy Vasser, co-owner of AIM Vasser Sullivan. “Kyle has proven he can compete and win in many forms of motorsports and we look forward to having him drive the Lexus RC F GT3 at Daytona.”
