ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After a seven-year absence, Flowmaster returns to the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup as its "Official Exhaust" for the 2003 season. Along with its official sponsorship agreement, Flowmaster will sponsor a new performance-based award, the "American Thunder Challenge."

"The Trans-Am Series is the premier road racing series, and is a perfect fit for our target market," said Flowmaster Director of Motorsports Dale Dotson. "The racing environment also provides us with the ideal environment to perform research and development. The information gleaned from the harsh world of racing translates directly into our line of high-performance mufflers and exhaust systems for the street."

The Flowmaster American Thunder Challenge will present a $2,000 bonus to the driver who wins the pole, sets fastest race lap, leads the most laps and wins the race at each Trans-Am Series event this year. Should no one win the award at a given race, the prize money will roll over to subsequent races until a driver wins the "Challenge." Any unclaimed prize money will be added to the championship points fund in Flowmaster's name.

"The American Thunder Challenge is just another way for Flowmaster to show its support of the Trans-Am Series and its competitors this season," said Dotson. "We are privileged to reward the people that make all of this possible -- the drivers."

Flowmaster, Inc. manufactures high-performance mufflers and complete exhaust systems and operates the only exhaust research facility of its kind in the world, centered around the Super Flow SF-7100 engine dynamometer.

Through continuous product testing and development, the Flowmaster product line has expanded rapidly from its original roots in racing to further include exhaust products for performance-street, truck, RV and motor home applications. Flowmaster manufactures more than 400 different muffler models and 300 different exhaust systems.

The Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup features closed-fendered, production-based, V-8-powered sports cars. The Trans-Am Series is America's oldest continuously running sports car racing series and celebrates its 38th anniversary in 2003.
