The Big Boys are back!
There's never been a more hard fought race series than the Trans-Am races of the late sixties and early seventies.
"The Trans-Am was a no-holds-barred, highly competitive series. We had the best American drivers, we ran on the best North American circuits, and we drove cars that were spectacular to watch and that the fans could easily identify with. The Trans-Am was the greatest road racing series that has ever been run over here..."
-- Parnelli Jones
"The potential of the Trans-Am series was fabulous, in my opinion. It was the very best kind of road racing that I can remember. All of the factories were behind us and we had the best drivers in this country competing. We also raced on all the best natural road circuits in North America and unlike today, we had great fans who could really identify with the cars that were on the track. It's too bad that it all had to go away."
-- Dan Gurney
Well, it's back. They're at it again...
