Motorock Trans-Am Series Announces 10-Race Schedule For 2004.
LONG BEACH, Calif. (March 9, 2004) -- Motorock Trans-Am Series Executive Director John Clagett announced the Series will run a 10-race schedule in 2004. The announcement was made at a press luncheon at the 2004 Trans-Am Premiere in Long Beach, Calif. Negotiations are ongoing to add a possible 11th event, which, if confirmed, will be announced at a later date.
"We are pleased to announce our 2004 schedule, one of the best in Trans-Am's long history," said Clagett. "We are offering a traditional mix of street, temporary airport and permanent circuits this season. It will deliver tremendous value for our marketing partners and teams.
"The schedule offers geographic diversity and taps key markets, which provide our growing fan base the opportunity to participate in the Trans-Am Series," Clagett added. "It offers a blend of the best road courses and temporary circuits, as well as opportunities to race with the Champ Car World Series and NASCAR."
Trans-Am will be the featured series at two events this season: Le Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (Aug. 1) and at the season finale in Puerto Rico (Oct. 10). The Puerto Rico date is contingent upon Federal Aviation Administration approval.
Trans-Am will run with the Champ Car World Series at seven races this year, including the season opener April 18 at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Other venues pairing Trans-Am with Champ Car are: Portland Int'l Raceway (June 19), Cleveland (July 2), the Molson Indy Toronto (July 11), as well as Road America (Aug. 7), Denver (Aug. 14), and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (Sept. 11).
NASCAR fans will again get to experience Trans-Am thunder, as the Series returns to Infineon Raceway for a second-straight year on June 27, along with the NEXTEL Cup Series.
