Revolution Motorsports dominates Corvette class at Road America; Hayner and Sak sweep the second row-- best in class.

Elkhart Lake, Wis. -- Aug 23, 2003 -- Once again, doing their best to upset the Jaguar parade, Revolution Motorsports' drivers, Stu Hayner [#2 GMAC Commercial Finance/ Trenton Forging Corvette] and Bobby Sak [#10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette], gave spectacular performances putting their Corvettes in the third and fourth positions on the starting grid for Sundays Trans-Am race here at Road America.

"We are getting absolutely everything out of this car," said Hayner. "Believe me, we left nothing on the table. It appears all we can do is find satisfaction in being first in class. The aero advantage the Jaguars have enjoyed all season is simply magnified on this 4-mile track. The good news is Johnny (Miller) is going to have his hands full with Scott (Pruett) and vice versa. So, starting in third might have its advantages. At least I'll have a good view."

"I think we've got a good racecar," Hayner continued. "One hot lap in qualifying is one thing... 100 miles around this place is another. I'm not sure what the early (10:45am) start will do for track conditions, but car management will be crucial. We've talked about a strategy and how hard we want to run early... but I'm sure once the flag drops, all that will go out the window. The big thing will be taking care of the car and being there at the end."

Bobby Sak echoed Stu's philosophy.

"We'll just have to be patient with this one. Like Stu said, if they run hard at each other we can plan a strategy to be there at the end. Fortunately, Stu and I are cooperative teammates (it should be noted, Hayner and Sak actually used each other to draft for their qualifying runs). Johnny and Scott are battling for the championship. So, I'm guessing, unless they have team orders, all bets are off. We've got the best seat in the house, that's for sure.

Revolution Motorsports will participate in the weekend's events at Road America. Stu Hayner will be attempting to close the gap in points as he chases down Jorge Diaz and Mike Lewis. Hayner will drive the #2 GMAC Commercial Finance / Trenton Forging Corvette.
