Miami, FL (Sept 25)--Top MotoRock Trans-Am Tour driver Randy Ruhlman began the Miami Grand Prix weekend on a fast note by ending the day in third after two practice sessions. Ruhlman is set to qualify in the Preformed Line Products/Coyote Closure Corvette at 11:30 EDT Saturday.

Ruhlman, who finished third in last year's Trans-Am race, commented after practice, "The track is really good. This morning we had rain and the track was not bad. This afternoon, the car was great. I had some older tires on for the session, so for us to be up in third means a lot. We "stickered up" with new tires, but the session ended early, when a car crashed into the barriers. I had a good time out there today, though, and am looking forward to seeing what we can to tomorrow."

The race is scheduled to begin at 4:30 EDT on Sunday for 87 laps of the 1.15-mile track. The Miami race will air on SPEED, tape-delayed on Oct. 10 at 9PM EDT. Ruhlman is currently sixth in driver's championship points with two races remaining.
