Action Express Racing team manager Gary Nelson says the team has relied on its NASCAR connections to provide the staff for the all-star lineup of Jimmie Johnson, Kamui Kobayashi, Mike Rockenfeller, and Simon Pagenaud in No. 48 Cadillac DPi-V.R entry at this year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The solution came from reaching out to NASCAR teams, primarily Hendrick Motorsports, and presenting them with an opportunity to give their employees on-the-job training with some of the same pit equipment that will become standard in 2022 when the NASCAR Cup Series adopts its next-generation car.

🚗 NASCAR HELP: @AX_Racing has relied on its @NASCAR connections to staff its No. 48 Cadillac DPi-V.R for the @Rolex24Hours, including the incentive of learning single-lug wheel nuts that NASCAR will adopt in 2022.
