Grand American approves Crawford Race Cars Daytona Prototype chassis designs.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 22, 2002) -- The Grand American Road Racing Association announced today that it has approved the Daytona Prototype chassis designs submitted by Crawford Race Cars, LLC. The Daytona Prototypes will be the premier class of the Rolex Sports Car Series in 2003. Crawford becomes the fourth car builder to have its chassis designs approved for construction, joining FABCAR Engineering, Doran Enterprises and Carbir Race Cars.

"[Crawford Race Cars President] Max Crawford has been building and developing race cars for years. He truly grasp what it takes to be successful in endurance racing, and its good to see that he is putting that knowledge and experience to use in the Daytona Prototypes," remarked Mark Raffauf, Daytona Prototypes Project Manager.

Crawford has an extensive automotive and racing resume dating back to 1966 in his homeland of New Zealand. He has worked as the crew chief and team manager for several championship-winning teams and has been actively involved the last 11 years in wind tunnel model development projects including the recent Ford Taurus Winston Cup program.

Crawford's SSC2K SportsRacing Prototype chassis has been contested at three Rolex Sports Car Series races this season. The car qualified third at the Rolex 24 At Daytona and second at California Speedway, where it also earned a podium finish.
