Is that McKeever who is the lead instructor at the Miller school? If so, few people would have as much time and experience there.

25% of that list reads like a San Francisco regional - good luck everyone!

That is the McKeever you are thinking of!

My bet is on a couple of our local Utah guys. Rock solid fast and consistent lap times all year.

Dan finished 5th last year with a bum engine and 3 year old almost corded tires. This year he is on a good engine with new tires. Other bet is Tyler at least these guys in the top three and then some other guys after them!

My goal this year is a top 10. I finished 12th last year with the E-brake on so we'll see (It was removed the day I got back home last year!)


We'll see in a couple of days!! Should be fun.

Not sure about on track, but my pick for the top 3 most entertaining in the paddock:

Tyler Dahl
Whitis
Sleeper

I dare you to debate politics with Whitis. Hopefully Tyler has a new suit this year. Stay away from Sleeper's blender the night before the big show.

Of all the predictions above - this is the only one that has nailed it so far!!!!! [Wink]

I think that is Sleeper's strategy... bring multiple blenders, get everyone fracked up much more then him allowing him to drive to victory in the race.

His strategy has a flaw! There are a few fast drivers here under 21. [thumbsup]

P.S I wasn't fast today.

Anybody got the schedule? Surprised there isn't better coverage on the NASA site. Like a link to all the results, or a link to the timing...

Mylaps only showing thursday practice. This is truly lame and inexcusable from a promotors stand point. If this is supposed to be your "Super Bowl," then the viewing public shouldn't be jumping through hoops to see how their friends and fellow competitors are faring.

Thanks Mark...I could never find the stupid event on MyLaps for whatever reason. They need to recode their search algorithm...

Neal - I see Thur qual and qual race on there. However, I agree that NASA has done a poor job of providing access to results. It should all be easily accessed from the NASA Pro Racing site and should have been tested before the event started. MyLaps itself is lacking too.

For the under 21ers he'll spike the Shirley Temples with laxatives.
