Hayner wants what is his-- Sak hunting down Diaz

Detroit -- May 21, 2003 -- As the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup pulls into Lime Rock Park for the Mohegan Sun Presents the Lime Rock Grand Prix, Stu Hayner can only think about what could have been in the 2002 version of this popular east coast stop on the tour.

"Lime Rock was the first race this team really came together. Putting the car on the pole proved what we are capable of," said Hayner, driver of the #2 Trenton Forging/GMAC Commercial Finance Corvette. "We were so strong. The car wasn't necessarily up on power, but we had the set-up nailed. I could put the car anywhere I wanted. On this track that gives you confidence and that's an added weapon that's tough to beat."

Hayner's rookie teammate, Bobby Sak [#10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette] hopes to capitalize on the #2 car's history here.

"It's going to help a lot knowing we were strong here last year," said Bobby. "Last week in Mosport Stu and I were really able to share a lot of information. I think that was helpful for Shane [Duhaime, Revolution Motorsports Crew Chief] in finding the best set-up. I'm learning how to compare information with Stu and in turn, express to Shane what's working and what's not. I think we'll continue to improve on that as the season goes on."

Hayner agreed. "Bobby is really becoming a great asset as a teammate. Last week at Mosport we had a rhythm going early on in the race. It had to be the most fun I've had in years. It's very rewarding to watch Bobby's progress. I've seen some pretty impressive driving from him."

Team owner, Don Sak, on returning to Lime Rock; "Coming back to Lime Rock is bittersweet. This is the track where our team had its first big success and its first big heartbreak. But, looking back, it was the start of something great. It established character that our team continued display all season long. Today they handle the challenge like the professionals they are. I guess it's why winning is so difficult and why it feels so good. We'll get there-- I have no doubt."

Sak also had comments about the team and Bobby's performance. "You have no idea how exciting it is to watch Bobby and Stu work together. It's a great fit. Together they bring tremendous synergy to the process of finding the right set-ups. And their relationship spills over to the camaraderie of the crew."
