"We’ve seen remarkable growth in TA2 yet again this year," said John Clagett, President of the Trans Am Race Company. "When you pair that with the growth of the Series overall, it can make for some extremely full racetracks. It’s the opinion of TARC that we take advantage of this growth and give TA2 a chance to shine on its own, allowing Trans Am to hold multiple races over the course of the weekend. It’s better racing for our drivers and more action for the fans. In turn, we have the opportunity to give TA2 their own broadcast at those locations as well, giving fans at home a double dose of Trans Am as well."
The trend of independent class races is one that Trans Am expects to see continued as the Series continues to grow into the future.
"Our opener at Sebring saw 74 cars entered," said Clagett. "Round 2 at Homestead-Miami has 70 so far. We’re working towards the potential of a full Trans Am weekend, with multiple races for multiple classes— it provides more value for our drivers, promoters, partners and fans. As opportunities present themselves, we’ll continue to address them, but the future of Trans Am is looking brighter and brighter every day."
The eight-event broadcast schedule on CBS Sports Network includes only the broadcast’s one-hour premier at this time, each event will have at least one replay to be announced at a later date.
