CLIFF EBBEN WINS GT-1 CLASS IN ROAD AMERICA TRANS-AM RUN

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (Aug. 21, 2005) -- GT-1 legend Cliff Ebben won the GT-1 portion of Sunday's Trans-Am Series race at Road America. Ebben (No. 36 McMahon & Associates/Baumgart's Tire and Wheel Chevrolet Corvette) earned his second consecutive Road America GT-1 crown after winning last year's event.

"I lost an engine in first-round practice, so we had to scramble, bet we got it changed and now we're here," said Ebben. "We had fun race here. We ran out of fuel at the end of the race, but we finished anyway."

The GT-1 Driver Development Program features Trans-Am-specification cars, but is reserved for up-and-coming teams from SCCA Club Racingis GT-1 division. The GT-1 Class winner is honored at each race this season, and features its own championship.
