HOMESTEAD-MIAMI, FL - 09/17/2004 - Despite the devastation South Florida has experienced over the past month, the Grand Am Cup event at Homestead-Miami Speedway is still planned for this weekend. Turner Motorsport pilots Will Turner, Don Salama, and Tim Pappas sit in first, second, and third in the ST-class Championship, respectively. Turner Motorsport also leads the Team Owner points race and BMW holds a lead in the Manufacturer's championship.

Will Turner, team owner and co-pilot of car #95 Turner Motorsport BMW 330i:

"We are happy to return to Homestead and bring a different kind of excitement to South Florida than what they have seen these last few weeks. We raced here earlier this year with a great second-place finish. Who knows? Maybe we can go one spot higher and get that maiden win for our car."

Don Salama, co-pilot of car #95 Turner Motorsport BMW 330i:

"It feels good to get back to racing after over a month off. There's nothing that this team wants to do more than win this Championship. The entire Turner Motorsport organization - and those of our sponsors - is eager to catch the action in the next few weeks. We have leads in the Grand Am Cup Championship and the SPEED Touring Car Championship. There's a lot to be excited about and this weekend we hope to put on a good show and please our fans."

The abbreviated schedule for this weekend calls for practice sessions on Friday and Saturday morning. Qualifying will be a 15-minute session on Saturday at 11:10am ET. The 250-mile race will begin at 2:45pm on Saturday but is subject to a 3-hour time limit. The race will air on The SPEED Channel that night, Saturday, September 18, at 10:00pm ET.
