Turner Motorsport - looking to capitalize in DC.
Will Turner looks to continue is climb in the WC Touring points standing.

Amesbury, Mass. July 16th 2002 - The SPEED World Challenge Touring Series heads to the Nation's capital this weekend to take part in the Cadillac National Grand Prix. The event will be run at RFK Stadium July 19-21 along with the American LeMans Series and the Trans-Am for BF Goodrich Tires Cup Series. The World Challenge Touring Series race will air on SPEED, Sunday August 4 at 4pm EST.

"This is going to be a lot of fun," stated Will Turner. "This is a brand new circuit so everyone is starting with a clean sheet of paper. We are going to see a huge separation among teams who know how to figure out their set-ups and get up to speed in a short period. More importantly, you are going to see the better drivers move to the top quickly."

"At Road America," Will continued, "you had a lot of drivers using their horsepower on those long straights and dumping off into the gravel traps. This weekend there are walls to deal with. The thought of hitting cement wall plays on your mind. The better drivers are prepared for it and have experience dealing with that. I really think you'll see the cream rise this weekend. Count on seeing the #92 Turner Motorsport / H & R Springs BMW 325i motoring out front. We're the highest ranked BMW in the Series points standings [4th], I'm excited about this race."

Joining Turner this weekend will be teammates, Bobby Sak [#93 Turner Motorsport / H & R Springs / missingkids.com BMW 325i] and Frank Selldorff [#94 Turner Motorsport / H & R Springs BMW 325i]. Sak is coming off a spectacular run at the Trans-Am On The Tarmac Presented by Microchip race at last weekend's Cleveland Grand Prix.

While the Turner Motorsport team faired well at Road America, it was a frustrating event. Qualifying was reduced to one green flag lap. Turner and Sak managed to pull of 6th and 9th place finishes, respectively, while Selldorff finished 13th. The weekend ended with Will Turner sitting 4th in the overall points standings. Sak is currently 10th and Selldorff sits at 18th.
