Bobby Sak back in the Revolution Motorsports #10 Corvette.
Father/Son switch again for Mid-Ohio and Cleveland.
Detroit - June 11, 2002 - Bobby Sak will have a chance to gain more seat time in his dad's Trans-Am car when the series moves to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio for the Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio.
"The closed circuit road courses are perfect opportunities for me to get more experience," said Bobby. "This is going to be especially beneficial because I'll move right into the next race in Cleveland too. Running two events back-to-back will allow me to really work on the rhythm of driving the #10 Corvette and also more opportunity to get comfortable and gel with this crew," he added.
Sak had an outstanding weekend in Mosport earlier this season, qualifying sixth. However, following his pit stop he had a racing incident with another competitor and damaged the car's nose.
"Mosport was an extremely valuable learning experience for me," continued Bobby. "I've really developed a good rapport with Stu Hayner [driver of the #02 Trenton Forging/Revolution Motorsports Corvette] and I expect that to continue with the two Ohio events."
The team looks to stay focused on their march toward the front following their outstanding showing at Lime Rock Park over the Memorial Day Weekend. Hayner's #02 Trenton Forging Corvette set the quick time in qualifying and was leading the race before suffering a part failure with five laps to go.
Crew Chief, Shane Duhane, reported that the #10 car's repairs are well in hand and anticipates it will equal the #02 car's Lime Rock performance numbers.
Next, the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup moves to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio for the Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio. The race is Saturday, June 29 and will air at 4pm on CBS Sports, [same day tape delay].
In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Cup. All events are nationally televised on CBS and Speed channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing.
