DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Alex Job (Tavares, Fla.) was named the recipient of the 2014 Rolex Bob Snodgrass Award of Excellence. It was presented by Gorsline Company at the Grand Marshall dinner last evening.

We were competitors and friends. We combined efforts in 2003 to run the No. 58 Red Bull Porsche at Daytona. Bob's team has won the 24 hours four times and he is a big part of the history of the race."  

The Rolex Bob Snodgrass Award of Excellence was created to recognize the team owner or team manager who has demonstrated the qualities of integrity, passion for the sport, and love of cars for which Bob Snodgrass was known during his life and career. The award, supported by Gorsline Company, the premier insurer of high-risk professionals, has been presented previously to Bob Stallings (2010), Joe Sahlen (2011), Peter Baron (2012), John Stevenson (2013), and Alex Job (2014).
