Randy Ruhlman Third in Trans-Am Practice at the Cleveland Grand Prix

Cleveland, OH (July 1, 2004) Randy Ruhlman scored a third in the first practice today for the Motorock Trans-Am Series race at the 23rd annual Grand Prix of Cleveland. With a time of 1:15.988, Ruhlman is well on his way to repeat his podium performance of last week at Infineon Raceway. The next session on track will be qualifying beginning at 6:15 this evening.

Ruhlman commented after the practice session, "The car feels great. There is a new section of the track that has been freshly paved, and it is slick. I almost lost it in there a couple of times just now. But that is racing, the tracks are the same for everyone. We are going to try to see what we can do with the car to make that area better for us. Our power is good, and that helps here a lot. We are ready for qualifying and most importantly, for the race. I have a lot of confidence here, and the car feels good. We are looking for a repeat podium tomorrow."

The Cleveland Grand Prix will be Ruhlman 140th starting Trans-Am. After his third place finish in California last week, Ruhlman is currently eighth in points going into this Round Four of the Motorock Trans-Am Series. Ruhlman finished sixth at Cleveland in 2003, and has been on the front row in qualifying here at the Burke airport track.
