Chip Ganassi Racing also won three straight Rolex 24 events. CGR was able to win three straight from 2006 through 2008.
The Konica Minolta Acura team completed 807 laps in the 24 hours. The winning drivers were Ricky Taylor, Filipe Albuquerque, Alexander Rossi, and Hélio Castroneves.
Before the race, the team switched to Acura. The previous two Rolex 24 event wins came in a Cadillac.
“So much went into this,” said Ricky Taylor, who scored the second overall Rolex victory of his career. “It was a test of trust and a testament to the preparation and sticking to a plan. … We skipped all of the off-season testings because the guys needed time to do everything properly. They know how to win this race. I feel like we were all lucky to be a part of it.”
Ally Cadillac Racing finished second in DPi. This team was led by seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson.
The team also consisted of Kamui Kobayashi, Simon Pagenaud, and Mike Rockenfeller. Kobayashi finished second after winning two straight Rolex 24 events with Wayne Taylor Racing.

Ezra Motorsport won the LMP2 category. The team was led by Kyle Tilley, Dwight Merriman, Paul-Loup Chatin, and Ryan Dalziel.
“It’s amazing,” Merriman said. “I’m proud of the team. It is a team effort to win in endurance racing, especially when you get to these super-long ones. It’s just so hard to win, even if you’re good. It requires all aspects of the program to be good.”
Corvette Racing’s Jordan Taylor, Nicky Catsburg, and Antonio García won a Rolex. García tested positive for the coronavirus, but the team announced it following the event.
Riley Motorsport won in LMP3. Scott Andrews, Gar Robinson, Spencer Pigot, and Oliver Askew were apart of this winning team.
