Rolex 24: Andy Lally to the garage after hitting a possum

The No. 44 Porsche 911 GT America team will not make it to the end of the running of the 53rd running of the 24 Hours of Daytona.

The GTD car began billowing out smoke soon after the sun broke through at Daytona International Speedway due to what was eventually diagnosed as an oil leak.

Though the exact cause of the oil leak is not known for certain, a potential culprit could be a possum that flew through the front of the Porsche and bounced off of the radiator around 5 a.m. Sunday morning.
