INDIANAPOLIS (May 10, 2004) -- The Motorock Trans-Am Series race will be the featured event on Saturday, July 10 at the Molson Indy Toronto. The event is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. EDT, following the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series by Ford qualifying. The Trans-Am Series will help kick off a weekend featuring the Champ Car World Series race on Sunday, July 11, as well as the Toyota Atlantic Series.

"Scheduling the Trans-Am race on Saturday, following Champ Car World Series qualifying, gives fans a substantial value for their racing dollar," said Motorock Trans-Am Series Executive Director John Clagett. "The Trans-Am Series, which makes it return to Toronto after a nine-year hiatus, is an ideal headliner for Saturday's events, making for a truly action-packed weekend of racing."

The race will air live, commercial free, on HDNet.
