[VIDEO] Go Behind the Scenes of the Rolex 24 at Daytona with Corvette Racing's Tommy Milner

Here’s a great video from Chevrolet featuring Corvette Racing and specifically American driver Tommy Milner as the team opened the 2015 season with the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Milner is now in his 5th season with the team and is paired with Oliver Gavin in the No. 4 Corvette C7.R. The duo, along with the addition of Simon Pagenaud, earned a third place finish in the GTLM class at Daytona.
