    Daytona International Speedway Enlists Help from Industry and Fans to Locate Three Former Overall Champions for 50 Years of Rolex

    The effort to assemble the most unique collection of overall Rolex 24 At Daytona championship cars to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the twice-around-the-clock challenge on Jan. 28-29 is well underway and 25 cars have already been secured. However, the whereabouts of three legendary cars remains elusive and officials at Daytona International Speedway are turning to sports car fans, industry partners and media representatives to help locate these past champions.

    The 1979 Interscope Porsche driven by Hurley Haywood, Danny Ongais and Ted Field. The car delivered the fourth of Haywood’s five overall Rolex 24 wins.

    Nope, Canepa has 000-0017. It was delivered to Kremer in 1980 for conversion to full K3 spec before delivery to Interscope.

    I believe a friend of a close friend in Miami owns the Interscope Ongias OO 935 and the Coke A Cola Fab Car tube chassis 935...

    930 990 0029
    Chassis 930 990 0029 Sold new to Ted Field's Interscope team, chassis 930 990 0029 made its competition debut at the 1979 Daytona 24 Hours. For the occasion Field was joined by Danny Ongais and Hurley Haywood. Starting from 8th, the '0' car took a brilliant debut victory. In the remainder of the 1979 season, this performance could not be matched but Field did manage to finish second on two occasions. Now in French hands, the Daytona winner is regularly raced in historic events. It is seen here during the 2006 Le Mans Classic.
