Trans-Am/IMSA GTO, Chassis #011
This car first turned a wheel in competition in 1985 as a Roush/Protofab
Trans-Am Capri. By 1987, it had been changed up to IMSA GTO specification and was driven by Lyn St. James. After racing for several hard-fought seasons, most race cars are retired, usually becoming outmoded by the Next New Thing in chassis design, but not this car. It is a testament to the genius of Roush Racing that this car was not only raced for nine years, but that it won the GTO class at the 24 Hours of Daytona two years in a row, in 1991 and 1992, its 7th and 8th race seasons, respectively. It also won the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1991. In Roush history, no other car has run more 24-Hour Daytona races. After its well-earned retirement from racing, #011 was thankfully unmolested and its recent restoration required only some mechanical and minimal cosmetic attention to bring it back to its 1992 configuration.
