Surprisingly, there were a lot of folks who stayed after the CART race to see the Trans-Am cars compete. 

I was wore out after the long race weekend and wanted to get on the road back home but I'm really glad we stayed to see the Trans-Am cars.  This was the first Trans-Am race I can remember seeing in person and I enjoyed it a lot. 

The V-8s sounded like NASCAR engines.  The Jaguars looked great and were clearly the class of the field.

It was fun to see former CART driver Scott Pruitt win the race AND the series title. There was an unusual car competing called the Quale Mangusta. The Trans-Am rules say the cars must be production-based but I've never seen or heard of a Quale Mangusta.  I want to learn a little bit more about this car.  I think the Trans-Am series would be a perfect partner to run the same weekend as the ALMS at Sebring.
