CENTENNIAL, Colo. (January 18, 2002)-SCCA Pro Racing Ltd. has finalized another date on its 2002 Pro Spec Racer schedule. The seventh stop on the schedule has been confirmed as a return to Chicago Motor Speedway, August 24-25, in a pairing with the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in the Sears Craftsman 175 Weekend.

"We are pleased to announce the addition of the Chicago Motor Speedway to the 2002 Pro Spec Racer schedule," said Mitch Wright, SCCA Pro Racing Vice President and General Manager. "We are looking forward to building on our relationship with Chicago Motor Speedway and the foundation we established last year when the series put on an amazing show."

The date will add more visibility to an already high-profile schedule, which includes dates with NASCAR's Winston Cup Series at Sears Point Raceway and Busch North Series at Lime Rock Park, and two dates with the SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series For the BFGoodrich Tires Cup at Mosport International Raceway and Virginia International Raceway.

The SCCA Pro Racing Pro Spec Racer series features identical, purpose-built SCCA Spec Racer open-cockpit, closed-wheel cars. The PSR is intended to provide very tight competition at reasonable costs. In 2002, the series will begin its ninth season of competition, offering up-and-coming drivers a chance to compete at a professional level on temporary street circuits, permanent road courses and ovals.
