ELKHART LAKE, Wis. -- Greg Pickett, who timed 10th on Saturday for Sunday's Trans-Am 100, Round 8 of the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup championship at Road America, will start 19th due to a four-tire change in his No. 6 Cytomax Exercise and Recovery Drink Jaguar XKR.

Pickett was cited under Rule 1.7.10.2: "Tire Declaration Form" in the 2003 Trans-Am Series General Regulations & Technical Specifications, which states: "...four tires will be used for all qualifying sessions, and to start the race. If a team is unable to start the race on at least three of their marked tires, they will forfeit their starting position..."

The Trans-Am 100 is scheduled to start at 10:45 a.m. tomorrow. The race will air on same-day, tape-delayed basis at 11:30 a.m. CDT on SPEED. Final Trans-Am practice will follow today's SPEED World Challenge Touring Car event.
