DALLAS — AIM Vasser Sullivan announced that Aaron Telitz will co-drive the No. 12 AVS Lexus RC F GT3 at the 2020 Rolex 24 at Daytona Jan. 25-26.

“We’re happy to announce that Aaron Telitz will, once again, be part of AIM Vasser Sullivan team for the 2020 Rolex 24 at Daytona,” said Jimmy Vasser, co-owner of AIM Vasser Sullivan. “Aaron did a good job going from open wheel cars to sports cars last year. He was one of the guys that helped us finish second in our Rolex 24 debut and hopefully we can take to the next level this year.”

AIM Vasser Sullivan will campaign two Lexus RC F GT3s at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GTD class.

The No. 12 Lexus RC F GT3 will be manned by Townsend Bell, Frankie Montecalvo, Shane van Gisbergen and Telitz, while the No. 14 Lexus RC F GT3 will be campaigned by Jack Hawksworth, Parker Chase, Kyle Busch and Michael De Quesada.

Telitz, a native of Wisconsin, drove for AVS last year in all four endurance races helping the team to a second-place finish in its Rolex 24 debut.

“Coming from open wheel racing to sports cars last year I didn’t know what to expect,” said Telitz. “However, I had a great time working with all my teammates and to finish second in our first Rolex 24 was awesome. I’m honored that Jimmy Vasser, Sulli and Andrew Bordin made it possible for me to come back for a second time. I think we have a great driver line up with Townsend (Bell), Frankie (Montecalvo) and Shane (Van Gisbergen) and I am looking forward to, hopefully, having another good race in this year’s Rolex 24.”
