Bobby Sak ready for Lakefront challenge.

"They Built This City On Rock n' Roll" say's younger Sak. "I'm ready!"

Detroit - July 10, 2002 - This week Revolution Motorsports and the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup move to the Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland, Ohio. The event, Round 5 in the Series, runs in conjunction with CART as part of the Marconi Grand Prix of Cleveland, July 12-13.

Once again, Bobby Sak will take a turn in the #10 Revolution Motorsports/Trenton Forging/Missingkids.com Corvette. This is Bobby's third Trans-Am Series race this season.

"Cleveland will be a real challenge," said Bobby. "With the track configuration spread out over the airport tarmac, you don't have the typical visual markers available to you. At most tracks you use certain things to establish your brake points.... you know, you see things that become mental markers to help set your rhythm and get your timing. Here it is completely different. With the speeds we reach, it will be a very physical race. With the unique nature of the track, it will be a mentally fatiguing race."

"I'm glad Stu [Hayner] has had experience here," added Bobby. "He will help accelerate the learning curve for me. This race has been on my mind since the start of the season. It's a bittersweet anticipation. I know it will be tough... but for the same reason, I can't wait. I'm really looking forward to it."

Bobby previously ran the Trans-Am Series at Mosport and Lime Rock. "This weekend I'll have the benefit of only having to focus on the Trans-Am car, " said Bobby. "At the other two events I drove Trans-Am and I my SPEED World Challenge Touring car for Turner Motorsport. I think I'd have second thoughts about doing that on this track," he said grinning.

This will be Bobby's final event of the 2002 season in the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. His father, Don Sak, will be back in the #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette next week for the Cadillac Grand Prix of Washington D.C., July 20th.

Bobby's fans can still catch him in action racing his #92 Turner Motorsport/H&R Springs/BMW 325i in the SPEED World Challenge Touring series in 2002. The series will run in conjunction with the Trans-Am Series in Washington D.C.

In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports competes as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events are nationally televised on CBS and SPEED channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing.
