DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Fernando Alonso was the only driver on the Wayne Taylor Racing team with extensive experience racing in the rain, so he was the natural choice to carry the heaviest load in the weather-ruined Rolex 24 at Daytona.
But when the puddles turned to small ponds and the unrelenting rain made it nearly impossible to see, the two-time Formula One champion had enough.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Latest on the Rolex 24 at Daytona (all times local):

Alonso powered past three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves to put his Cadillac DPi into the early lead in the twice-round-the-clock endurance race at Daytona International Speedway. Once he settled in, Alonso put Wayne Taylor Racing out front by nearly 15 seconds during a lengthy opening stint to his year.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Rolex 24 at Daytona is an annual display of the most gorgeous sports cars in a splashy opening to the North American motorsport season. The action-packed endurance race is a glittery manufacturer showcase that draws deep-pocketed car collectors to a party inside Daytona International Speedway.

Alonso is entering the race with McLaren, which had a 70 percent win rate from 1968 to 1970 when partnered with Chevrolet that included 23 consecutive victories. The IndyCar Series currently has only two engine providers, Chevrolet and Honda, but McLaren has a strained relationship with Honda.

At 39, Raikkonen is on a front-running team with Ferrari but has already charted a course toward the back next season with Sauber. Alonso, 37, is stuck in the middle with McLaren and has opted to leave F1 at the end of the season.
Both former F1 champions say they are happy with the course they've chosen.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Fernando Alonso hinted that he could return to race the Indianapolis 500 again in 2019 after he retires from Formula One.

He says "although I've been part of the team for a while now, this is a special moment, one I could only hope would become reality."
MONZA, Italy (AP) — Nico Hulkenberg is saying hello to the halo.
Hulkenberg has often dismissed the protective device on F1 cars, which was introduced this season, with the Renault driver saying last year that it looked stupid and wasn't necessary.
However, the halo's benefit appeared plain to see at the Belgian Grand Prix last weekend when Fernando Alonso's McLaren spiraled into the air and bounced on top of Charles Leclerc's Sauber during a dramatic first-lap crash.
SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium (AP) — Sebastian Vettel made a crucial early overtaking move on Lewis Hamilton to win the crash-marred Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday and trim his rival's overall lead.
Hamilton started from pole position for a record fifth time at Spa, and a record-extending 78th in Formula One, with Vettel second on the grid.
But Vettel has a knack for quick starts, and nudged his Ferrari past Hamilton's Mercedes on the first lap with a smart move down the left.
