Daytona Added To 2002 Pro Spec Racer Schedule

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (February 28, 2002)-SCCA Pro Racing(r) announced today that it has added Daytona International Speedway to its 2002 Pro Spec Racer schedule.

Round Eight is slated at Daytona, November 8-10, in a pairing with the Grand American Road Racing Association in the Grand-Am Finale Weekend.

"We are very pleased to secure Daytona due to the unfortunate circumstances which lead to the cancellation of the Chicago Motor Speedway date," said Mitch Wright, SCCA Pro Racing Vice President and General Manager. "With this addition, the Pro Spec Racer series schedule is really shaping up."

The SCCA Pro Racing Pro Spec Racer series features identical, purpose-built SCCA Spec Racer open-cockpit, closed-wheel cars. The PSR is intended to provide very tight competition at reasonable costs. In 2002, the series will begin its ninth season of competition, offering up-and-coming drivers a chance to compete at a professional level on temporary street circuits, permanent road courses and ovals.
