It's "lock and load" as Revolution Motorsports seeks dual title season.

DETROIT February 20, 2003 Revolution Motorsports rolls into St. Petersburg Florida this week focused on two Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup titles. Stu Hayner will pilot the #2 Trenton Forging Corvette looking to capture is first drivers' Championship, while teammate, Bobby Sak takes over the seat of the #10 Corvette in search of the Rookie of the Year title.

"The team has done an amazing job during the off-season," commented team owner, Don Sak. "The dedication and hard work really showed during a recent test session. After working day and night getting ready, the crew showed up trackside at 7am ready to go testing. If effort equals results, look for the Revolution cars to show the way around all season," said Sak.

"I'm really happy with the handling changes we've made," added Stu Hayner. "And the horsepower is very strong. If we can repeat our results on temporary circuits and capitalize on the changes we've made, we're going to be pretty tough to beat in St. Pete."

"We know we have a challenge ahead of us just keeping up the chemistry of last year's effort," added Hayner. "We've made a few changes in personnel during the off season and it seems like the fit is great. At our recent test session everyone was on the same page. We really feel equipped to get this done!

Bobby Sak was equally enthusiastic.

"I've got my work cut out for me," Sak acknowledged. "This is a lot of car and a whole lot of power. I plan on minding my manners and making a steady run for the season. I'm trying to focus on what I need to do instead of what I'd like to do. I've spent the off season trying to get my mind set right and on paying attention to my dad, Stu and our crew chief, Shane Duhaime."

"These guys have all been down this road," Bobby continued. "It's up to me to listen and learn. I'm in this for the long haul. I don't need to prove myself in the first corner or the first race. I know what to do. I'm going to concentrate on building."

Revolution fans will be able to catch all the Trans-Am Series races this year on SPEED. The St. Petersburg race will air February 23 at 5:30 EST. As an added feature, the Trenton Forging #2 Corvette will be carrying two onboard cameras. With Stu Hayner's talent for staying in the middle of the action, viewers can expect some 'edge of your seat' excitement.
