T/A Race Tracks

Sears Point is another place for diehard TransAm enthusiasts to visit. Officially called Sears Point International Raceway is a 2.55 mile, 12 road course and a 1/4 mile drag strip located a bit north of San Francisco, California, on Sonoma Road between Vallejo and Novato. It was opened in 1968, later closed and reopened in 1973.
Thanks to G.A. we get a look of the race staging and into the garages.
At the first Historic Trans-Am class at the Wine Country Classic several Mustangs and a few other Javelins, Challenger and Camaros started in Group 9 (1966-1972 Historic Trans-Am Cars). The Mustang racers like Jamey Mazotta, John McClintock and Craig Conley finally decided that Scott Rubin might get the winners shot for this time to avoid and disharmony in their Mustang friendships. A very wise decision from smart speed guys.....
