DETROIT - July 16, 2002 - Revolution Motorsports and the Trans-Am Series for the BF Goodrich Tires Cup, head to Washington DC this week for the Cadillac Grand Prix, July 19 -20. The race, held at RFK Stadium, will air live, Saturday at 2:30pm EST on CBS.

Don Sak will be back in the #10 Revolution Motorsports / missingkids.com Corvette for the first time since Lime Rock Park.

"I'm anxious to get back in the car," said Don. "With the way Bobby ran in Cleveland, I started to worry about my job security. All kidding aside, though, Bobby's driving has motivated me. I'm really looking forward to it. I think the crew might be looking at me as if I'm auditioning. The pressure is on," he said, laughing.

Stu Hayner likes the even playing field the Washington DC event provides.

"We've been able to keep the #02 Trenton Forging / Revolution Motorsports Corvette in the hunt at every event since Long Beach," said Stu. "We had a great car in Mosport. Short of a missed queue in the pits, we'd have finished on the podium there. At Lime Rock we took the pole and we were 4 laps short of a victory. At Mid-Ohio we were running 5th and we got held up by lapped cars on the restart. In Cleveland we finally got our due."

"Knowing we are in the top 5 every week, I'm very encouraged going into this weekend. No one has an advantage on the DC track. It's brand new… all the teams are on a level playing field. I think the whole scenario suits our style and our approach. I think we'll put on a good show for the fans in our Nation's capital. It should be fun."

Hayner is currently locked in a three-way tie for 6th place in the Trans-Am Series point standings. With 90 points, he is only two points back from 5th place Tony Ave. Butch Lietzinger and Johnny Miller are tied for 3rd with 117 points.

"If we continue racing at our current pace, I definitely see us moving up in the standings," said Stu. "The next few spots are certainly within our reach. We just need to stay focused on our objective and take it one race at a time. Provided we make sure we show up prepared, the successes will come."

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.
