Also of Note: It's been a dozen years since the Trans-Am and Can-Am names were featured on the same ticket (Mosport Park, 1986), and this weekend continues a new era in North American motorsports as the 'modern' Can-Am Championship -- now competing under the USRRC banner -- and the NTB Trans-Am are once again teamed. This week will be the third of three 1998 venues featuring both the NTB Trans-Am and Can-Am (Homestead, May 16-17; Mid-Ohio, June 12-14).
