History: Revolution Motorsports is a two-car team new for 2002 owned by Trans-Am veteran driver, Don Sak.

Drivers: Stu Hayner #02 and Bobby Sak #10

Fast Facts: The team is located in Wixom, Michigan and will campaign two 2002 Trans-Am bodied Corvettes. The Team Manager & Crew Chief is Shane Duhaime. Car Chief for the #02 car is Mark Meissen. Car Chief for the #10 is Ken Kelly.

Thanks to a new partnership with the Missing Children Society of Canada, Revolution Motorsports takes the Missing Children's campaign north of the border, calling on Canadian neighbors for help.

In December 1994, four-year old Gavin Hollett disappeared from his Parry Sound, Ontario (Canada) home. The boy's father, Doug Gibbon, decided to fight back against the individual responsible for taking his son away. Gibbon, along with millions of fans in person and via Speed Channel, will see the picture of Gavin on the hood of the #10 Corvette.

Revolution Motorsports sets its sights on a solid weekend. In their first outing, the team made a great qualifying effort putting the cars 7th [#02 car] and 13th [#10 car] on the grid at the Johnson Control 100 in Long Beach. It demonstrated the team's commitment to being a competitive force in Trans-Am.

"Long Beach is behind us," said Stu Hayner. "We go to Mosport with a strong sense of purpose and direction. I am very confident we can win with these cars and with this team." Stu also noted, "It's going to be fun having Bobby out there too. Bobby is a great young driver. He will contribute a lot regarding car set-ups."

Don Sak agrees with Hayner. "We are not new to this. This is a competitive series.... that's why we've chosen to be here.... we like the competition that this series provides. We have made some changes we felt were necessary and we will show up at Mosport ready to compete. This weekend will be lots of fun with Bobby in the #10 car. I'm looking forward to it!"

Revolution Motorsports competes as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events are nationally televised on CBS and Speed channel (formerly Speedvision).
