Maui brothers compete in Rolex 24 at Daytona
The Frisselle brothers of Maui are competing in the Rolex Sports Car Series this year, including this weekend's season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
Burt and Brian Frisselle of Kihei will be driving in Synergy Racing's No. 8 Rx.com Porsche-powered Doran Daytona Prototype.
Patrick Huisman of The Netherlands joins the brothers in the 24-hour endurance race.
It's the second time in the race for the Frisselle brothers.
"I'm 100 times more confident going into this year's race," said elder brother Burt, 24. "You learn so much in that first race. Everything was brand new last year. Now we know how to pace. We know how the leaders will run the race."
Last year, the Frisselle brothers made it until the 22nd hour of the race, but were forced to retire after 523 laps when their car's gearbox broke.
