Revolution Motorsports ready for Trois Rivieres.
Team wants to keep up the momentum as the Trans Am Series heads north.

Detroit - July 30, 2002 - The Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup heads to Quebec Canada this week for the Trois Rivieres Grand Prix. Once again, the series teams up with the ALMS cars in what promises to be a great weekend of racing on the streets of Trois Rivieres. The race will air live on SPEED Channel at 2:30pm EST, Sunday, August 4.

"This is a terrific event," said Stu Hayner, driver of the #02 Trenton Forging/Revolution Motorsports Corvette. "I really look forward to coming here. The Canadian fans love their auto racing and they show up in full force to support the Trans-Am cars. It's a wonderful town and fun circuit. I think we're in for a good time and an excellent race."

Hayner, currently sitting one point out of fifth and just behind Tony Ave in the points standings, is pleased with the Revolution Motorsports team's progress.

"The team is really starting to gel," he commented. "We're communicating better with each race. The guys are getting to know how I like the car and I'm learning to how to communicate with them about what is happening out on the track. You can feel the pace picking up and everyone is really pumped to go racing. This is great... it really is."

During the week off, the team went through a review of their engine program.

"We've had some failures that put us in a tough situation," said team owner, Don Sak. "I had to pull my car from the program in DC [Cadillac Grand Prix in Washington DC]. The guys on the team were not happy about that. They show up to race, and when they can't they get pretty ornery."

Sak will be driving the #10 Revolution Motorsports/missingkids.com Corvette in this weekend's event.

"We've got fresh engines in both cars for this weekend," he added. "We'll be ready. It was good to have a week off in the schedule. It gave the crews a chance to catch up on things and sort out some rough spots. I'll tell you," he added, "this is one heck of a crew. I don't ever remember having such a dedicated group to work with. It's really a pleasure."

In association with Trenton Forging, Revolution Motorsports competes as part of the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup. All events are nationally televised on CBS and SPEED channel (formerly Speedvision). The Trans-Am Series is the oldest form of American sports car racing.
