SONOMA, Calif. - A long two days of waiting finally ended at 6pm Pacific time as the Trans-Am cars finally took the track to practice for the fifth round of the Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich® Tires Cup, here at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.
"We just haven't been able to find an answer to the Jaguar dominance," said Stu Hayner, driver of the No. 2 Trenton Forging/GMAC Commercial Finance Corvette. "We're going to go through notes from other tracks we've run at and pull data that will provide similar conditions. Hopefully we can find some better handling through our shock package and by looking at other settings. I think we can move up a few spots by qualifying."
Hayner finished the session seventh fastest for the day. Teammate, Bobby Sak, driver of the #10 Revolution Motorsports Corvette was 10th.
"My sway bar was bound up and really made the car a handful," said Bobby. "We came in and played around with it a bit, but I think once we get that fixed and look at our handling package we should be in good shape. I like the track. Once the car is handling right I'll be able to get around pretty good. I just want to make sure I do my part to put on a good show for the Trans-Am Series. This event is a great opportunity for Revolution Motorsports, its sponsors and the Series. So, we need to show them a good competitive race.
Appearing on the NASCAR schedule this weekend, the Trans-Am 100 will run Sunday, June 22, immediately following the SaveMart 350 and will air on SPEED Channel Friday, June 27.
