TRANS-AM, WORLD CHALLENGE RACE GUIDE PHOTO/BIO DEADLINE EXTENDED: The 1999 SCCA Pro Racing Race Guide head-shot and biography deadline for all BFGoodrich Tires Trans-Am Series and Speedvision World Challenge drivers has been extended to January 29, 1999. To meet a pre-Long Beach publication deadline, we will NOT be taking head-shot photos at any events, and therefore everyone's cooperation is needed in obtaining a current photo (1998 photos will not be used in 1999). In an effort to present each series in a professional manner, any bio that is sent without a driver photo will NOT BE PUBLISHED in the Race Guide. Send photos to SCCA Pro Racing, attention Dave Bratten. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support of these promotional efforts.
