Long Beach, Calif. April 12, 2002 Revolution Motorsports took to the track in its first practice session of the Trans-Am season at 4:15 pm Pacific time.

Stu Hayner finished his session with a quick lap of 1:25.096 placing him 9th overall. "The handling was excellent," said Stu. "We've got a fuel pickup problem that was cutting off the power down the straight, but we'll get that worked out. We need to do some adjusting on the brakes, tweak the gearing and we'll be good to go."

Don Sak reported that the #10 car was a rocket ship down the straightaway but wants to work on getting the power down. "The car was fighting a bit and I felt I was running out of gear in 5th. But, I'm very pleased. The car is definitely within our window.... We just need to narrow the window a bit and [laughing] get the driver to tighten up his grip on the saddle. We'll definitely be quicker tomorrow," he added.

Sak's quick time was 1:27.856 making him him 17th fastest.

In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes in this weekend's Toyota Grand Prix at Long Beach and the duration of the 2002 Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup.
