Interview with Bill Riley
Riley & Scott In Other Series?
“Pratt and Miller still run the Corvette program. In 1999, we had a team sitting here with nothing to do and Pratt and Miller were really busy, so we ran one Corvette and they ran the other. We ran the Daytona 24 hour, Sebring and Petit Le Mans. Now Pratt and Miller runs the whole team. My father had been partners with Gary Pratt at a company in Detroit called Protofab. That is where we built quite a few Trans Am cars. We get along very well with them.
C5R-002 is the car Riley and Scott ran.

Photo Shoot from “Racer Magazine” August, 1999 Issue
This is Chassis Number C5R-002 with the Sebring 1999 hood and most of the Sebring graphics. It does, however, still have the “Daytona 1999 only front whiskers or smile” in black paint on the nose. The photo shoot probably took place in early March, 1999.
