Trans AM Racing History
- Billed as the Trans American Sedan Championship, the series held its first race on March 25, 1966, at Sebring International Raceway in Florida.
- In 1973, the Trans Am Series went through its first major rule change.
- In 1975, the Trans Am Series was restructured based on the SCCA Club Racing’s fastest production car classes. Group 4 and 5 cars were added to the mix in 1976, and the Trans Am Series went to a two-class system-Category I and II.
- The Trans Am Series returned to its roots in 1989, as American carmakers Ford, Oldsmobile and Chevrolet squared off. Ford capped a 25th anniversary celebration for the Mustang by scoring its first Manufacturers’ Championship since 1970.
- Significant news was made off track, as SCCA Pro Racing assumed series’ ownership and management. Just two races were held in 2006, and both were run at Ray Irwin’s Heartland Park Topeka. The field was mostly GT-1 club racers, but it did include several Trans Am “regulars”
