Trans-Am Series champion Brian Simo will be honored at the San Diego Hall of Champions 55th annual Salute to the Champions on Feb. 7. The Carlsbad, Calif., driver was named professional star of the month last November, after winning the Trans-Am title on his home track during the inaugural San Diego Grand Prix.

Simo will join other talented San Diego athletes at the prestigious sports banquet. Honorees include Super Bowl champion Marshall Faulk, American League home-run leader Troy Glaus, PGA Tour winner Phil Mickelson, Supercross champion Jeremy McGrath, tennis ace Michael Chang and NHL star Chris Chelios.

Simo will return to the Trans-Am Series this season, driving the Tommy Bahama Valvoline Mangusta for Tom Gloy Racing.
