AC/DC singer will race at Daytona

AC/DC lead singer and budding race car driver, Brian Johnson, will co-drive in the 50th running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway.

FoxSports reports the racing series' official website says the 63-year-old plans to drive for Predator Performance in a Riley prototype car.

Johnson will co-drive with Chattanooga businessman Byron DeFoor, who owns and races numerous high-horsepower Can-Am and BMW GT cars; they will be joined by two to three professionals at the Rolex 24.

The Englishman is no stranger to motorsport as he often takes part in races in vintage car races in the United States.

Johnson won’t have to travel far to find the famous Daytona circuit, either, as he currently resides in Florida.

The Rolex 24 at Daytona will be run over the 28th and 29th of January 2012 and will be broadcast on SPEED and SPEED HD.
