Pruett to appear on Car and Driver Radio.

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Two-time Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich® Tires Cup champion Scott Pruett is scheduled to be interviewed on "Car and Driver Radio," hosted by Alan Taylor on 97.1 FM Talk in Los Angeles. Pruett will be part of a live remote being held in the Expo Center at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach temporary circuit Saturday, April 12 at 3:30 p.m.

After an eight-year hiatus, Pruett marked his return to the Trans-Am Series this season with a victory in the season-opening Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in February. Pruett hopes to become only the second driver to win more than one race at Long Beach, joining team owner and three-time drivers' titleholder Paul Gentilozzi.

Pruett last competed in the Trans-Am Series full time in 1994, before stints in the Champ Car World Series and NASCAR. Pruett won the 1987 Long Beach Trans-Am Series race.

Taylor brings a cutting edge style to the airwaves with his entertainment-driven, comedic, honest and open discussions about the automotive world. Taylor's career has been a successful one, perfecting his show in more than 100 markets coast to coast. His last stint hosting "Motor Trend Radio" produced 14 broadcast awards including "Best in Radio" from the International Automotive Media Awards (IAMA) in New York.

Taylor is producer and host of "Car and Driver Radio." Taylor interviews the industry's most powerful CEOs, designers, race car drivers and decision makers about today's automotive products. In fact, Taylor has no qualms about provoking his listeners to ask questions directly to racing and automotive personalities live.

No stranger to the broadcast booth himself, Pruett will be doing double duty at Long Beach, calling the Champ Car World Series race prior to the racing in the Trans-Am Series event.

The Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup features closed-fendered, production-based, V-8-powered sports cars. The Trans-Am Series is America's oldest continuously running sports car racing series and celebrates its 38th anniversary in 2003.

The next Trans-Am Series race is scheduled for April 13, during the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend. The race will air on a same-day, tape-delayed basis on SPEED Channel at 9 p.m. ET.
