Revolution Motorsports starts out the year by assisting the local authorities in looking to solve a frustrating missing persons case. In 1999, 17-year old Erika Limon (now 19) was last seen outside of her home in Long Beach. The 5'-5", 110 lb girl has not been seen since. Long Beach Police have not been able to turn up many leads in this case and hope to learn more after putting the word out this weekend. Erika was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jean shorts and blue tennis shoes. Anyone who might have information in this case is asked to call the NCMEC at 1-800 -THE-LOST or The Long Beach Police Juvenile Division at 1-562-570-1448.

Revolution Motorsports looks to kick of a winning season and start a winning tradition.

After a recent test session in Michigan, Don Sak was quoted as saying, ""We learned a great deal out there today. There is so much to think about before getting the cars on the track and working on the set-ups. Our guys really got past the cold temperatures and were flawless at coaching me (and the other drivers) to warm up the cars correctly. All of us learned much more than we had anticipated. I am elated."

Team Manager, Shane Duhaime, added "I know that we have a great group of dedicated guys in the shop as well as excellent drivers giving us good feedback. That helps us with changes making the car significantly quicker. I laugh at myself for having any negative thoughts about getting to the first race in Long Beach,"

The Johnson Controls 100 Trans-Am Series Race will air on Saturday, April 20, beginning at 5 p.m. ET on the Speed Channel (formerly Speedvision).
