At just 16 Colin Braun made his road racing debut at one of sports car racing’s crown jewels, the Rolex 24 Hour race. In 2020, in his 16th consecutive start, Colin took home his third Rolex 24 win to add to his decorated sports car career that includes wins at the 12 Hours of Sebring and Six Hours of Watkins Glen. At 17 he became the youngest driver to race in the top-tier Prototype class at the Rolex 24. That same year, he became the youngest driver ever to place on the podium at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans finishing second.

In addition to a storied sports car career, Colin competed in NASCAR’s Truck and Nationwide series. And with a nod to his former NASCAR days, he’s credited with turning the fastest lap around the Daytona International Speedway oval at 222.971mph in the Ford Ecoboost-powered Daytona Prototype machine with Michael Shank Racing. Hand-picked by Ford, Colin’s 40.364-second lap broke Bill Elliott’s previous record carving out another career milestone.

In 2020 Colin looks ahead to the SRO season where he will return with George Kurtz and CrowdStrike Racing to race the No. 04 CrowdStrike Racing/AWS/DXDT Mercedes-AMG GT3 in the GT World Challenge America powered by AWS class. Building on 2018, Colin and the team are hungry and looking to stand atop the podium while chasing a championship.
