Paul Fix and the ...

Paul Fix and the #77 Jaguar XKR finishes 13th at the Cleveland Grand Prix and moves up two places in the points standings.

Cleveland, OH (July 13, 2002) - Racing down the airport runways at high speeds makes for a very competitive race, as was witnessed this weekend at the Trans-Am on the Tarmac Presented by Microchip at Burke Lakefront Airport. Paul Fix and the #77 Royal Purple Jaguar finished 13th when the checker flag dropped.

After two 9th place and a 11th place finish compiled with this weekend, Paul has now improved his championship points standings by two places. Currently, Paul is in 12th place and expects to move up as the season continues.

Paul had a perfect pit stop just as the pits opened from a yellow flag incident, Paul slipped into the pits for a quick stop and got out fast enough to be in 6th place. The leaders made their pit stops on the next lap. Paul was in the right place at the right time.
