Revolution Motorsports commemorative handout American Muscle Trading Card - St. Pete exclusive.

St. Petersburg, Fla. February 21, 2003 Trans-Am Series and Revolution Motorsports fans will receive and added bonus at this year's St. Petersburg Grand Prix. To commemorate the start of 2003 Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup, Revolution drivers, Stu Hayner [#2 Trenton Forging Corvette] and Bobby Sak [#10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette] will be handing out full color trading cards featuring artistic renditions of the their respective cars against an American flag backdrop. The back side has a picture of the driver and a personal biography. The cards are a limited edition of 500 per driver and will be autographed at the Trans-Am driver's autograph session on Saturday. (Location TBD) Distribution will be first come first served and one per person. This is the only event that fans will be able to receive this card.

"These are really neat," said team owner, Don Sak, referring to the card. "It's such a great time to be racing in Trans-Am. I'm excited about the new Trans-Am series management, the fantastic venues they've added to the schedule-- and what can I say about watching my son, Bobby, take over the seat in the #10 car and go for Rookie of the Year? Heck, we're still pinching ourselves from last year. Hopefully, the fans will enjoy the American Muscle card and carry home the memory and excitement of being at a Trans-Am race."

"The cards began as a prototype idea last year," commented John Thawley, Revolution Motorsports PR director and designer of the card. "I had hand made a few of them to show around and the response was great. When Don and David Moxlow [Trenton Forging] asked about doing something just for the season opener, the idea of the card seemed a perfect fit. The cards feature the new Trans-Am Series logo too."

Stu Hayner, coming of his best ever Trans-Am season in 2002 [5th overall in points] feels this is his best opportunity to make a bid for the title.

"I feel so strongly about the caliber of our team and our equipment," said Stu. "Don Sak has put together one of the finest and most professional teams in the paddock. I'm so confident in the crew and the car they've put under me. We've got what it takes to get the job done."

Revolution fans will be able to catch all the Trans-Am Series races this year on SPEED. The St. Petersburg race will air February 23 at 5:30 EST. As an added feature, the Trenton Forging #2 Corvette will be carrying two onboard cameras. With Stu Hayner's talent for staying in the middle of the action, viewers can expect some 'edge of your seat' excitement.

Revolution Motorsports in association with Trenton Forging competes as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events are nationally televised on SPEED. The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing. You can find out more at www.trans-amseries.com.
