Miami, Sept. 27, 2003 -- The Trans-Am Series Motorock Tour for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup will start an 18 car grid for Sunday's 'Battle by the Beach.' Bobby Sak [#10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette] will occupy the inside spot on row three while teammate Don Sak [#2 Revolution Motorsports / Trenton Forging Corvette] will start two rows back.

"The car was pretty close this morning," said Bobby. "I think we have a few teaks to do and we'll be right there. The first six cars are all running pretty close. A cool head will really pay off. We've got 87 laps to sort this thing out, so there's no reason to try anything heroic."

"Traffic is going to play a big part," added Bobby. "Hopefully, we won't see a lot of cautions, but that's something we're going to consider as part of our race strategy. The track configuration requires you to think of the big picture. It's going to feel like a long race. I'll be happy to run a good pace-- keep the front runners in sight and be in position to make a run at the end."

Don Sak was equally pleased with his day and the team's efforts.

"I feel pretty good starting in 9th," the senior Sak remarked. "The car is great. I've got one of the best crews in the paddock. They have been able to set the car up for me and bring me up to speed without missing a beat. I really appreciate their efforts."

"I'm taking a queue from Bobby regarding strategy," he continued. "The plan is to be patient, run a steady pace and be around for the finish. Working traffic is going make a big difference in where and 'if' you finish. That's my goal today. If I can get up near the top five, it'll be a good day. If I can beat Bobby--. It'll be a GREAT day."

The father and son duo will be fielding the #2 and #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvettes as part of the Motorock Miami 100. The Trans-Am event will take place on the streets of Miami Friday. September 26, through the 28th. The race will air on SPEED October 10 at 9pm EST.

Revolution Motorsports in association with Trenton Forging competes as part of the MotoRock Trans-Am Tour for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events are nationally televised on SPEED. The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing.
