Motorock Trans-Am Series Unveils 2004 Engine Builders' Challenge; CRD, Huffaker and Rocketsports Back New Contingency Program

INDIANAPOLIS (March 22, 2004) -- This year, CRD Engine Development, Huffaker Engineering and Rocketsports Racing will sponsor the Engine Builders' Challenge, a new contingency program for Motorock Trans-Am Series competitors.

Each engine builder will offer a contingency award to those drivers using the companies' respective engines. Each engine builder will post race contingencies of $1,000 in cash or product certificates at each race, as well as a year-end bonus of $2,500 in cash or product certificates. Teams must display contingency decals on both sides of their cars to be eligible.

"This new program will showcase one of the most important parts of a Trans-Am race car--its V-8 racing engine," said Motorock Trans-Am Series Executive Director John Clagett. "Creating a competitive engine program requires great skill, care and expertise. CRD Engine Development, Huffaker Engineering and Rocketsports Racing all have decades of experience in supplying some of the most powerful and competitive engines in motorports. We're excited this year to recognize both their dedication to Trans-Am and their long-standing commitment to excellence."

The Motorock Trans-Am Series kicks off its 2004 season April 16-18 at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The Trans-Am race is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 18, immediately following the Champ Car World Series event.
