Nick Boulle Joins FASTMD Racing at the 2023 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona
Nick Boulle of de Boulle Diamond & Jewelry, an independent jewelry salon in Dallas and Houston, is confirmed to race with FASTMD Racing at the prestigious Rolex 24 on January 28th and 29th at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. With teams racing around the clock for 24 hours, the Rolex is recognized as one of the world's premier endurance races as it is a true test of fortitude and strength.
Boulle completes the squad with a lineup of James Vance (CAN), Yu Kanamaru (JAP) and Antonio Serravalle (CAN), bringing a wealth of experience to the FASTMD team. They enter the race confident that both car and crew are prepared to take on this monumental challenge as they have been working tirelessly in anticipation of the event. The team gets behind the wheel of #87 Duqueine M30-D08 Nissan in the LMP3 class.
Kicking off the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, this year's race marks the 61st Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona and the seventh time that Boulle has driven on the famed track. As the crown jewel of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the historic race features competition in five classes: the headlining Daytona Prototype International (DPi), Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2), Le Mans Prototype 3 (LMP3), and the GTD PRO class. This year, a full entry list of 61-car grid, including 9 entries in the LMP3 class will compete for a podium finish. This is the highest entry list since 2014.
"I'm really looking forward to racing with the FASTMD team," said Boulle. "I've been preparing for this race for the past couple of months and I'm looking forward to working together with the team to hopefully secure a podium finish."
Boulle brings years of experience on the world's greatest endurance racecourses including Le Mans, Spa-Francorchamps and Daytona. His greatest notoriety may be when he became the first certified Rolex retailer to win the Rolex 24 At Daytona in the LMPC class with Performance Tech Motorsports in 2017. In addition, Boulle has previously secured several podium placements.
The Rolex 24 At Daytona will take the green flag on Saturday, January 28 at 1:40 pm EST. Fans can watch the action live on Peacock and USA Network. The race will be broadcast on a mixture of NBC broadcast and streaming properties.
