We have rounded the clock once and there are now 12 hours remaining in the 2021 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. At the mid-way point of the race, the No. 10 Konica Minolta Acura DPi team, currently being driven by Felipe Albuquerque, is leading the way, but the gap to second-place is tight.

The No. 48 Ally Racing Cadillac DPi team, currently being driven by German driver Mike Rockenfeller sits second overall. This, of course, is the team featuring seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson — who is in search of his first Rolex 24 victory in his eighth start.

Rockenfeller has the No. 48 machine just 0.651 second behind the No. 10 entry.

Chip Ganassi Racing’s No. 01 Cadillac DPi team sits third, while Action Express Racing’s No. 31 Whelen Engineering entry, currently being driven by  2020 NASCAR Cup Series champion Chase Elliott, sits fourth.
