Alonso adds another jewel to career with win at rain-soaked Rolex 24

Saying he was in fear racing in a steady, heavy rain, Alonso passed Felipe Nasr for the lead of the 57th annual Rolex 24 At Daytona on Sunday.
It never restarted, and Alonso added yet another landmark achievement to a prolific career that includes two Formula One championships and leading the Indianapolis 500 in his only attempt to date.
Sharing the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R. with Renger Van Der Zande, Jordan Taylor and Kamui Kobayashi, Alonso was spectacular after rain began to fall before 6 a.m. ET Sunday.
Alonso wasn’t the only driver with connections to the Indy 500 and INDYCAR to win Sunday at Daytona.
