LANSING, Mich. (Feb. 6, 2004) -- The Motorock Trans-Am Tour confirmed it will return to Infineon Raceway, as part of the Northern California road course's NASCAR NEXTEL Cup weekend, June 25-27. The announcement brings the total number of venues confirmed for 2004 to four, including Le Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (July 31-Aug. 2), Road America (Aug. 5-8), and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (Sept. 10-12).
The 2004 event will mark the 19th year Trans-Am has competed at the two-mile permanent road course, having contested its first event there in 1969. Trans-Am returned to Infineon Raceway last year, after a two-year hiatus.
"We're pleased to announce Infineon Raceway will be a part of our 2004 schedule," said Motorock Trans-Am Tour Executive Director John Clagett. "Last year's event, which showcased Trans-Am drivers doing double and even triple duty, was one of the high points of the 2003 tour. We're looking forward to another competitive and exciting race."
Said Steve Page, president and general manager of Infineon Raceway: "The Trans-Am Tour has a long-standing heritage at Infineon Raceway and last year's race was a terrific addition to our premier event weekend. We're delighted to feature Trans-Am racing for our fans again in 2004."
The Motorock Trans-Am Tour features closed-fendered, production-based, V-8-powered sports cars, competing on permanent road courses, and temporary street and airport circuits throughout North America. The Trans-Am Tour is America's oldest continuously running road racing series and celebrates its 39th anniversary in 2004.
