Boris Said and Mike Davis to compete at Infineon Raceway Sears Point

SONOMA, Calif. -- Defending Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich® Tires Cup Drivers' Champion Boris Said plans to compete in the Trans-Am 100, part of the NASCAR weekend at Infineon Raceway, June 20-22. Joining Said will be his ACS Express Racing team owner Mike Davis.

Said, driver of the No. 33 ACS/GE Access/Sun Microsystems Ford Mustang, is returning to the Trans-Am Series after a two-race suspension, levied for conduct in contravention of Trans-Am Series rules during the Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend. Davis will drive the No. 11 ACS/GE Access/Sun Microsystems Ford Mustang.

"I am glad we are able to bury the hatchet and put our differences aside now that the suspension is over," said Said, who finished second in the season opener at St. Petersburg after starting last, and won Round 2 at Long Beach. "Trans-Am is the Series I have always loved and I am hoping that we can put this all behind us and get back to racing."

"Boris is an immensely talented race car driver and brings a lot to the Trans-Am Series," said Trans-Am Series Chief Steward Terry Dale. "We're pleased with his decision to move forward, and we're delighted he's decided to return to the Series.

"We can now put this episode behind us and let Boris get back to what he enjoys doing most...racing in the Trans-Am Series," added Dale.

The Trans-Am 100, part of Infineon Raceway's NASCAR weekend, is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 22, following the Winston Cup Series race. The race will air, on tape-delayed basis, on the SPEED Channel, on Friday, June 27 at 8 p.m.
