HRP and Aurora Bearing Present the "Just Outside" Award in Trans-Am

PEORIA, Ill. (Sept. 20, 2009) -- In anticipation of the 2009 Muscle Milk SCCA Trans-Am Series season finale at Road America on Sept. 20, Hoerr Racing Products and Aurora Bearing have announced the "Just Outside" Award for the sixth-place finisher in the Championship point standings.

To the driver that just misses a top-five finish in the 2009 Trans-Am season point standings, HRP and Aurora Bearing will present a $750 certificate for a full-car set of Aurora rod ends. HRP and Aurora Bearing hope the prize will give the sixth-place finisher the edge he or she needs to be a future Trans-Am Champion.

After more than 40 years of success in a variety of racing programs, including Trans-Am, Hoerr Racing created Hoerr Racing Products in 1998. The expansion into the racing parts business allowed the company to service its customers' race teams from the design process through the building and maintenance of their cars, providing not only the necessary parts to run a team successfully, but the technical knowledge that four decades of experience in auto racing has produced.

"We were thrilled to witness the return of Trans-Am," HRP President Jason Mitchell said. "HRP has been a long-time supporter of the series and we're glad to be back on board with the "Just Outside" Award. We wanted to give this prize package to a driver who maybe just needs that little something extra to get to the front. We'd love to see the "Just Outside" Award winner fighting for the Championship next year."

The 2009 Muscle Milk SCCA Trans-Am Series concludes at Road America on Sept. 20. Qualifying is scheduled for 8 a.m. with the race to follow at 1 p.m. (CDT). News and results will be available at www.sccatrans-am.com.
