DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (December 8, 2003) -- Homestead-Miami Speedway will play host to test sessions exclusively for the Daytona Prototypes of the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series, December 19-20.

Approximately 13 Daytona Prototypes are expected to be at the test session, which will be the first chance for Rolex Series cars to take laps around Homestead-Miami Speedway's newly reconfigured racetrack.

It will also mark the first public test for several new Daytona Prototype teams, including Silverstone Racing's Chevrolet Chase CCE-001, Michael Shank Racing's Toyota Doran JE-4, The Spirit of Daytona's Chevrolet Crawford DP03, BOSS Motorsports' Chevrolet Crawford DP03 and a third Crawford race car.

Other Daytona Prototypes expected to be on hand include both of SpeedSource's Ford-powered Multimatics, PAP-Parts' BMW-engined FABCAR, the championship-winning Chevrolet Doran JE-4 of Bell Motorsports, three Porsche FABCARs from Brumos Racing and Cegwa Sports' Toyota FABCAR.

Race fans will have the opportunity to watch the test sessions free of charge from the fourth-floor club level of the front-stretch grandstands.

Grand American's official website - www.grandamerican.com - will also carry extensive coverage of the test sessions including Zippo Live Timing & Scoring, as well daily photo galleries and news from the garage.

Homestead-Miami Speedway will play host to the Daytona Prototypes twice during the 2004 Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series season. The series will join the IRL IndyCar Series for the Grand Prix of Miami, February 26-29, and will return to South Florida as the main attraction on the September 10-12 weekend. Tickets for the Grand Prix of Miami are available online at www.homesteadmiamispeedway.com.

The 2004 Rolex Series season will kick off with the 42nd anniversary of the 2004 Rolex 24 At Daytona, January 29-February 1. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 386-253-RACE.
