November 10, 2003 - CSI Miami Tonight: CBS hit CSI Miami will feature American Spirit Team Johansson in tonight's episode titled "Grand Prix". The episode was filmed during the week leading up to and during the weekend of the Grand Prix of Americas in downtown Miami. The program begins with an American Spirit team member involved in a homicide and is followed with the crime scene investigation. Tonight's program features guest stars Lauren Holly and Jason Lewis. While Jimmy Vasser's #12 car is predominantly featured, Ryan Hunter-Reay completed most of the stunt driving. Viewers will recognize the American Spirit transporters, hospitality unit and pits in tonight's program while the crew featured in the program is a combination of team members from both the #12 and #31 cars.

Johansson and Vasser to run Baja: Both Stefan Johansson and Jimmy Vasser will compete in the Baja 1000 later this month. It will be Johansson's first time competing in the off-road race; he will drive for Centrix Racing alongside Michel Jourdain Jr. Vasser will make his second attempt at the 1000 mile desert race with his life-long friends Mike and Robbie Groff. The race is a 763-mile loop that begins and ends in Ensenada, Mexico. The green flag will fall on Friday, November the 21st at 8:00 am. You can follow Stefan and Jimmy's progress on living timing at www.rlhcomm.com.

Hunter-Reay Relaxes: Champ Car's most recent race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay has finally returned to his home in Boca Raton, Florida after five weeks on the road. He will spend the next few weeks getting some rest and relaxation, between his daily work-outs, karting three times a week and when weather permits, surfing.

Vasser's Tour Continues: Vasser spent the weekend in Brazil attending the wedding of his good friend Tony Kanaan and racing in the Granja Vaiana Kart 500. Vasser teamed up with Alex Zanardi, Oriol Servia and Michel Jourdain Jr. to finish fourth in the 644-lap karting event. This weekend, Vasser heads to Colombia to participate in his former teammate Juan Montoya's charity karting event, "Formula Smiles".
