DETROIT Dec. 12, 2001 -- Don Sak Racing today announced sweeping changes to its long running Trans-Am Series racing team. Sak, who ranks second in all-time number of starts among active drivers, has formed Revolution Motorsports, a new team that will be a competitive force in the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup.

Revolution Motorsports has moved into its new Wixom, Michigan facility and, in association with Trenton Forging, will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes. These popular American muscle car icons sufficiently arm the team to be a force in contending the 2002 Trans-Am Championship, starting with the Grand Prix of Miami on April 6, 2002.

"I am excited about the new venture and I feel that with the personnel we have this season, Revolution Motorsports will succeed in raising the competition level within the Trans- Am Series," Sak said from his home this afternoon. "On all levels of this team, we have been bringing on people who know how to win and have done so in the past"

Among the highlights of last year's Trans-Am season was Don Sak Racing's Missing Children program. Fueled by the success of a partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Revolution Motorsports is bringing the faces of America's missing children back to the hood of their racecars again for 2002. After featuring a 7-year-old Michigan girl during the 2001 Detroit Grand Prix, the team was publicly credited by law enforcement officials for being instrumental in the return of the little girl to her custodial father, putting two wanted kidnappers behind bars.

"That exposure (on Don Sak's racecar) and other race-related publicity yielded tips that led to Tori's return, Cheboygan County Sheriff Dale Clarmont said. "We're just elated because this time it is a very happy ending, thanks to the hard work of these very generous people."

Revolution Motorsports will compete as part of the 12-race Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events will be televised nationally on CBS and the Speed Channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing. You can find out more at
