Diaz's Trois-Rivières qualifying time disallowed due to engine change.

TROIS-RIVIÈRES, Quebec -- The No. 8 Don Q Rum Jaguar XKR of rookie Jorge Diaz, Jr. will start last in today's Le Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières, Round 7 of the 2003 Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup championship. Diaz's time was disallowed after his team elected to make an engine change.

Diaz qualified ninth Friday. Diaz was cited under rule 1.7.10.1 in the Trans-Am Series Rulebook: "...If a driver changes engines after qualifying, the driver must forfeit his starting position and start at the back of the grid. The entire grid moves up, filling the vacant positions..."
