Long Beach- Calif. April 12, 2002 Revolution Motorsports have mandated that all "over-the-wall" crew members will wear Snell 2002 approved safety helmets for all Trans-Am races in 2002. This is a significant step considering all Trans-Am events will include a mandatory pit stop in 2002.

"It is important to us to know we have been proactive and considered all possibilities in insuring the safety of our personnel" said team owner, Don Sak. These people spend many hours away from their families and as such, they become extended members of our own family. We are not about to wait for the Series to mandate head gear. We are doing it now. It's important," he added.

In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports will campaign two 2002 Chevrolet Corvettes in this weekend's Toyota Grand Prix at Long Beach and the duration of the 2002 Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup.

California native, Stu Hayner will drive the #02 car for Trenton Forging and Don Sak will drive the #10 car featuring the picture of a California child, Erika Limon in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The Johnson Controls 100 Trans-Am Series Race will air on Saturday, April 20, beginning at 5 p.m. ET on Speed channel (formerly Speedvision).

Revolution Motorsports will compete as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Cup. All events are nationally televised on CBS and Speed channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing. You can find out more at www.trans-amseries.com.
