Grand American inks three-year extension with Featherlite.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 17, 2003) -- Grand American Road Racing Association announced today that it has signed a three-year extension with Featherlite, Inc. The agreement makes Featherlite the 'Official Transporter and Trailer' of Grand American Road Racing Association through 2005.

As part of the sponsorship, Grand American will receive a 50-feet long Featherlite transporter featuring a Daytona Prototype, Acxiom Grand Touring Challenge cars and Grand-Am Cup entries in a colorful graphics display on each side of the transporter. Grand American will take delivery of its newest transporter later this month.

Race fans will get their first glimpse of the Grand American trailer during the NASCAR Winston Cup Aaron's Dream Weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, April 4-6. The Grand American Featherlite transporter and two Daytona Prototypes will be part of a large display for fans promoting the inaugural Barber 250 at The Park.

Featherlite has also continued its Rolex Sports Car Series contingency program, offering a total of $1,000 to podium finishers in the Daytona Prototypes, GTS and GT classes that use Featherlite trailers, transporters or motorcoaches and display Featherlite decals on their race cars.
