CONCORD, NC. -- Kelly Bradley, owner of Grand Sport Racing and driver of the No.02 Corvette and Terry Lackey in the team's new No.04 C5 Corvette ran in the World Challenge GT season opener held here on March 31.

Bradley, qualified in the 27th starting position out of a 43-car field and finished 31st after an on-track incident with one of the Dodge Vipers.

During 1999, Bradley contested all 10 races in his rookie Speedvision GT season, recording three top-10 finishes and a best result of sixth at Vancouver.

He finished 12th in the overall championship with 95 points.

Grand Sport Speedway driver Terry Lackey qualified 18th in the No.04 C5 Corvette in its inaugural race, and ran an excellent race until forced to retire with a broken rear spring. He officially finished 28th in the race.

In 1999, Lackey contested the full Speedvision GT Championship in his rookie season, finishing 10th in the season championship with 112 points.

He had three top-10 finishes, including a fourth at Vancouver, driving a Corvette LT-4.

Bradley is building Grand Sport Speedway in Hitchcock, Texas. Lackey is the facility manager of the Speedway, which includes a 2.0-mile road course, which will begin construction early in 2000. The Speedway's sponsorship of these Corvettes is a major effort by Bradley to inform the racing community of the unique course and car storage facilities, which will be available at the Grand Sport track and garage.
