MP 469: Busby Racing Wins The 1989 24 Hours of Daytona

January 26, 2019

Team owner Jim Busby, driver John Andretti, Busby Racing crew chief Mike Colucci, and Porsche/Andial legend Alwin Springer bring their win a the 1989 Sunbank 24 Hours of Daytona to life on the 30th anniversary of their overall win in the gorgeous No. 67 Porsche 962.

The two-car effort, with the lead No. 67 entry for the late hero Bob Wollek, all-time great Derek Bell, and Andretti, was complemented by a one-off second entry, the No. 68, as a tribute entry featuring the Holbert Racing crew and a 962 chassis for Mario and Michael Andretti, in the wake of Al Holbert’s death a few months earlier.

By the end of the 24 Hour, Porsche had won its 50th race with the 962, which would also serve as Bell's final 24-hour win, and with a long delay for fog, the windshield flying off with Andretti behind the wheel, and a titanic battle for victory with Jaguar that forced Wollek to close the race running at qualifying speeds, the 1989 event is loaded with amazing stories offered by our guests.
