The teleconference, available only to credentialed media, will be interactive, with questions relayed via a SCCA Pro Racing moderator. The cybercast will be the first of its kind for a Trans-Am press conference, and in addition to the live coverage, the entire conference will be archived on both theautochannel.com and the SCCA's web site, scca.com (http://www.scca.com).

"The combination of both teleconference and cybercast availability for this press conference fills the information needs for media who can't personally attend as well as for the many fans of the Trans-Am."
