Championship Infos from Wiki :

The ‘Trans-Am series’ is an automobile racing series that was created in 1966 by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) President John Bishop. Originally known as the Trans-American Sedan Championship, the name was changed to the Trans-American Championship for 1967 and henceforth.[1] The series has in fact gone by a variety of different names through the years (too many to list), some linked to sponsors, some not. It has evolved over time from its original format as a Manufacturers’ Championship series for modified passenger sedans and Coupés to its current form as a Drivers’ / Manufacturers’ Championship Series that is open to GT style racecars. Champion drivers have been officially recognized, and Drivers’ Championship(s) have been awarded since the 1972 season.

The series was formed at the dawn of the ‘pony car‘ era, and was derived from the SCCA’s A & B Sedan amateur Club Racing classes,[3] Early Trans-Am Series racecars were just modified production cars. The series was open to FIA Group 2 Touring Cars,[4] and it featured two classes: “Over 2.0 Liter”—111 inch wheel base or less and engine displacement limited to 5.0 liters / 305 cubic inches (primarily American pony cars), and “Under 2.0 Liter” (predominantly European sedans), with both classes running together.

The series was best known for competition among American V8 coupes such as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, Plymouth Barracuda, Mercury Cougar, AMC Javelin, Pontiac Firebird, and Dodge Challenger in the 1960s and early 1970s, driven by some of the most famous names in auto racing, like Mark Donohue, Parnelli Jones, and Bob Tullius,[5] to name just a few. Marques such as Porsche (until its 911 was reclassified as a sports car and not a sedan), Alfa Romeo, BMW, Datsun, Mini Cooper, Saab, and Volkswagen competed in the series’ Under 2.0 Liter category.

The 1968 season was notable for the addition of the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Daytona, the only year the Trans-American Championship featured those races. The ’68 season also marked the first time the series ever left the United States, as the race at Mont-Tremblant, Quebec introduced Trans-American Championship racing to Canada. From 1969 on, co-drivers were not used, as most of the races were between 2.5 and 3 hours.

Penske Racing campaigned Chevrolet Camaro Z28s through 1969, and American Motors (AMC) Javelins in 1970 and 1971. Mark Donohue dominated the ’68 season, winning 10 out of 12 races (only one of them with a co-driver), ultimately chalking up 29 race victories from 1967 to 1971, the last 10 of them in a Javelin. He was instrumental in the Trans-Am Series becoming the greatest American Musclecar racing showdown there was in the late ’60s and early ’70s. After achieving so much success together and popularizing “Trans-Am” (Donohue in particular), Penske Racing and Mark Donohue both left the series after the ’71 season.

Mark Donohue made the Javelin a three time winner in 1970, but five wins made it Parnelli Jones’ greatest season ever, with Ford winning its’ first Manufacturers’ title in two years. With Porsche‘s 911 moving to a 2.2L engine, 1970 also saw the resurgence of Alfa Romeo, dominating the Under 2 Liter class with a 9 win (out of 11) season. BMW picked up wins number one and two in the other races.
