Gidley And Malucelli Taken To Hospital After Crash

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Memo Gidley and Matteo Malucelli have been admitted to a Daytona Beach hospital for further testing following a two-car accident right before the three-hour mark of the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

IMSA officials say both drivers are awake and communicating. No other information was given about their conditions.

Gidley was driving for the pole-winning GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing team. He had to be cut out of the No. 99 Corvette.

The accident occurred when Gidley plowed into the back of the slower Ferrari driven by Malucelli. The cars were heading into the kink in the infield portion of the track facing directly into the sun.

Malucelli’s car had lost power and his team said he radioed he was pulling out of the way as the cars headed into a high-speed turn.
