Trans Am West Portland round rescheduled for Laguna Seca

By

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli West Coast Championship round scheduled for September 4-6 at Portland International Raceway has been rescheduled to take place during the Laguna Seca season finale December 4-6, creating the first doubleheader event of the season for the West Coast Championship.

The series will continue its amended 2020 calendar at Sonoma Raceway October 9-11, which is now Round 3, followed by Circuit of The Americas November 6-8.

“Trans Am, which has a long history at Portland, will look forward to returning in 2021,” said John Clagett, Trans Am Racing Company president. “Adding a (second points race) to the season finale will make for an interesting close to the West Coast Championship.

“I appreciate our paddock being flexible in these challenging times,” Clagett continued, “and we are happy to be able to integrate (the Portland) race into another time in our schedule – everyone loves the Monterey weekends.”

Round 2 of the Trans Am West Coast Championship at Sonoma Raceway last weekend saw a dominant Greg Pickett lap nearly the entire field, taking the checkered more than a minute ahead of second-place overall finisher Simon Gregg. It was Pickett’s fifth Trans Am win at Sonoma since 1978.

Pickett leads the West Coast championship campaign in the TA class, with Gregg (XGT), Matthew Butson (TA2), Carl Rydquist (SGT) and Joe Bogetich (GT) all atop the standings in their respective classes.

The Trans Am national championship, meanwhile, returns to action at Virginia International Raceway for two 100-mile races Sept. 24-27.
