And Now for Something Completely Different: Magnus Racing and the Holy Rolex

Behold! It is Magnus Racing! From the castle of Camelot, chosen team of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, defeator of the boring, Sovern of all GTD! We have ridden the length and breadth of the land in search of knights who will join us in our court at Daytona. Our purpose, our sacred task, is the Holy Rolex. A blessing! Barfield be praised!

With our trusty steed, the No. 44 Magnus Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT4, we have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land, throughout the kingdom of America to Florida, in our search for the greatest knights in the land to join John Potter, King of Magnus Racing.

The wise Sir Andy Lally was the first to join Potter’s knights, but other illustrious names were soon to follow. Sir Spencer Pumpelly the Brave, and Sir Jonny Adam, the not-quite-so-brave-as-Sir-Spencer-Pumpelly.

They will fight with the strength of many men to acquire the Holy Rolex, and in the name of God, we shall not stop our fight ?til each car is passed and the Holy Rolex returns to those whom Barfield has chosen!

We hope you shall watch, and pray as we begin this holy quest at the Rolex 24 At Daytona. We begin on Saturday, January 29 at 1:40 PM Eastern, airing live on NBC, and streaming flag-to-flag on Peacock. Our foe are many, but we know we have total, unlimited power based on divine right.

And to our competitors, we fart in your general direction!
