    Of note relating to the Rolex 24 Hour Race at Daytona for which practice begins tomorrow and is the first major race of the year at least in the Northern Hemisphere--The first 24 hour automobile race:

    The Columbus, Ohio 24 Hour in 1905. Coming in first were brothers George and Charles Soules who covered 828.5 miles in a Pope-Toledo.
