Trans-Am Releases 11-Race Schedule
The Trans-Am Race Company has announced an expanded 11-event schedule for the 2014 Trans-Am Championship — beginning Sunday, March 2 at Sebring (Fla.) Int’l Raceway.
“It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2014 Trans-Am schedule,” said John Clagett, President, Trans-Am Race Company. “We firmly believe that we have assembled for our drivers and fans one of the best schedules in road racing, with venues that will allow for the continued growth and success of the Trans Am Series.”
“In these 11 tracks we have some traditional homes of Trans Am and other new exciting venues. In working with these tracks and partners we feel that Trans Am is now, more than ever, capable of delivering a level of racing worthy of the Trans Am legacy that everyone can appreciate and enjoy.”
The 2013 series featured multiple entries in the high thirties, including a decade-high 41-car entry at the 2013 finale at Daytona Int’l Speedway—numbers that the Trans-Am Series only expects to see rise.
“We are very excited to see what 2014 has in store for Trans-Am,” said Clagett. “We saw outstanding growth across all classes in 2013; and with multiple commitments from additional drivers, teams and partners coming in every day, we expect the 2014 Trans-Am Championship to be one of the best years Trans Am has seen in quite some time. The future of Trans Am looks incredibly bright.”
2013 stood as a year of landmark change for the Trans Am Series, and saw the legendary American series return to levels of competition unseen for over a decade. In 2013 Trans Am Championship averaged more entries per race than all but two seasons since 1991, those being 1998 and 2000—encouraging signs for Trans Am and fans of the Series going forward.
