    Congratulations to Lee Saunders, in his #84 Landsearch LLC Dodge Viper, for taking 1st Place in the TA3 International Group at Sebring today. (Trans AM Road Racing Series) Lee led the International group from start to finish. In addition Lee finished ahead of all other cars in the TA3 American Muscle Group (a higher qualifying group, he was not competing against) Lee's Dodge Viper was the only Dodge in the entire 52 car field today. Its great to see the Viper at the top of the podium again. I believe this is the first time a Viper has had a trophy finish at this level since the mid 1990's. I know many people on the forum know Lee, make sure to tell him congrats !!!!! Go Viper. You can read about the race at "gotransam.com"
