This unrepeatable and sure to be unforgettable experience offers two lucky guests all-access passes to the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2019, including entry to the Porsche hospitality suite. The winning bidder and a companion will attend as personal guests of Hurley Haywood, including the opportunity to have dinner with the racing legend. Furthermore, one guest will be invited to take hot laps around Daytona with Haywood behind the wheel of a Brumos Porsche in the 24 Minutes of Daytona preceding the big race.

With three overall victories at Le Mans, five at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and two at the 12 Hours of Sebring, Hurley Haywood is the world's most successful endurance sports car racer. Furthermore, Haywood raced in the International Race of Champions (IROC) four times, the Indianapolis 500, won championships in both IMSA and SCCA, and won dozens of races during a career spanning more than 43 years.

Included with this incredible experience is also a numbered (no. 59) Brumos Collector's Edition of Mr. Haywood's newly released book, Hurley! From the Beginning, signed by Hurley as well as Patrick Long, Manfred Jantke, Dan Davis, Kerry Morse, Richard Baron, and Sean Cridland. Haywood discusses his racing career, personal life, cars he's driven, and drivers he's raced with and against; he tells it all, candidly and from the beginning.
