Team introduces new 014 chassis, new Team Engineer and new Crew Chief in Milwaukee

Atlanta (GA) May 23rd, 2002: After earning their first point of the season in only the second race of the series and their existence, Transnet Racing and their driver, Alex Garcia, are preparing for the third race of the Toyota Atlantic Championship on June 2nd on the historic one mile oval in Milwaukee.

The driver and the team tested at the Milwaukee track for two days earlier this month, and are happy with their results to date as they continue working to refine their strategies to reach their goals in this ultra-competitive championship. Transnet Racing's rapid rise in the ranks of Toyota Atlantic teams is the first phase of their planned development into one of the leading teams in Toyota Atlantic competition within three years.

"Milwaukee is very exciting for me," said Garcia. "I get to debut the team's new Swift 014 which we feel will be better all around. This will also be my first race with our new engineer, Brian Jones and new crew chief, Eduardo Aguilar, both of whom are great additions to our team. I am looking forward to working along side them and the rest of the guys at Milwaukee. We have made tremendous progress as a team and continue to do so every time we go to the track."

Greg Sorrentino, General Manager of Transnet Racing said: "Milwaukee marks the debut of Transnet's 014 chassis. The one we used in Mexico and Long Beach -- the 008 - will serve as our primary spare car. We also have new members of the team joining us as of this race, including Brian and Eduardo.

With them and the rest of the team, we will take advantage of some additional testing on Thursday, May 30th and after that we will focus on the upcoming race weekend."

Official practice and qualifying sessions for the third round of the Toyota Atlantic Championship will take place Friday, May 31st and Saturday, June 1st. The race will start Sunday, June 2nd at 2:30 p.m. (EDT). The race will be broadcast live by Speedvision.
