The 1989 Daytona 24 hours – Texaco Havoline and the Cruise Brothers
I was really looking forward to the 1989 Daytona 24 Hour race. I had been working as a weekend warrior for Bruce Leven’s Bayside team since early 1987. The team had enjoyed successful seasons in 1987 and 1988, winning multiple IMSA races, the Sebring 12 Hour twice and the Porsche Team Cup. The team had a very good chance to win the 1989 Daytona 24 hours.
1989 would start off with a bang, as Bruce entered two cars for the Daytona 24 Hours. Running two cars at Daytona is not an easy task, everything seems more than just twice the amount of work, because you need extra people to deal with fuel, tyres, food and more.
