Approaching the halfway mark, Trenton Forging driver pleased with results.
DETROIT - July 15, 2002 - Coming off a third place run in Cleveland, Stu Hayner, driver of the #02 Trenton Forging / Revolution Motorsports Corvette finds himself tied for sixth place in the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup point standings.
"Our run in Cleveland was exactly what we needed," said Hayner. "I can't emphasize enough how hard Shane [Duhaime, Crew Chief for Revolution Motorsports] and the guys at the shop have worked to get us here. We had hoped to find ourselves in the top 10 by mid-season... not to count our chickens before they hatch, but I'd say we've met our goal."
Hayner, on the road traveling to Washington DC, added, "everyone on the team is treating this weekend like a fresh start. I think the celebrating lasted about an hour and they went right back to talking about their game plan for Washington. The team's commitment is amazing."
"And what about Bobby Sak [#10 Revolution Motorsports / missingkids.com Corvette] this weekend?" asked Hayner. "I'm so proud of him. He drove so well... and showed an amazing amount of maturity. When Paul [defending Champion, Gentilozzi] started banging on me, I saw Bobby pull up and hold the outside line... he flat out snookered that old man [Gentilozzi is older than Hayner]. I loved it! Bobby will have a great future racing in this series. It has been a lot of fun running with him," Hayner added. [Bobby Sak will not run any more events this season in order to preserve is Rookie standing for 2003.]
Other members of the team echoed Hayner's thoughts. "Bobby ran great," said Shane Duhaime. "He paced himself and the car perfectly. And the way he held is own with some of the veterans out there... he let them know he came to race."
Duhaime also commented on Stu Hayner's standing in the points. "We're really pleased with where we are. When we started this thing we agreed that we would be happy to get on the podium... so, I guess you can say we're happy. But honestly," he added, "we'd like to win one."
