Spending most of his Trans-Am career in an era of Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge factory teams, Lagod and his father Jerry fielded their own privateer effort, first with a Chevrolet Camaro and later a Corvette.

In addition to winning his second-consecutive Runoffs in 1997 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lagod enjoyed his best season of Trans-Am competition, recording an 11th-place finish in the final standings, and closing the season with a second-place finish at the Reno Grand Prix - his first series podium finish. He later scored another podium finish, had six top-fives and 29 top-10s in his career.

Lagod passed away on Saturday, March 12, following a battle with Lymphoma. He was 41.

He is survived by his partner Jennifer Brennan, parents Jerry and Linda Lagod, plus a brother and sister.

The SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series will recognize Lagod in a moment of silence prior to Friday's opening Round from Sebring International Raceway.
