If I told you how many B5's I saw today at Reedy practice you wouldn't believe me!

They are "Pre-Production" models to verify the tooling and molds.

Man all this noise the week of the Reedy, someone has to be running a B5 at the race. Two videos, at least 4 B5Ms out there(I don't believe for a second Kody and Stephen have the only dialed in MM) now this teaser from Bill. I'll be there Saturday watching and I'm hoping they will be running.

I believe that the B5M WILL be there but not under any of the 'big names' that you would expect. I don't think it will be an actual part of the race, nor will it debut. I think they will use the environment to get a little more testing and under a more professional setting. Just what I think

The B5 is at Reedy, just not racing. It will be on display for all to see.

they can throw down some C4.2 laps and follow up with some B5 laps, if B5 is faster, they are racing B5 if AE gives it the ok.

I think Bob is racing so go check out his pits to see what he is using.

Essentially what I said I'm just inferring that they will most likely have the car there and even run it in some of the practice with the faster pro's to get a better feel for the car within a more competitive practice setting.

It almost might be worth it for me to make the 30 minute drive over to the race just so I can see the car

30mins is nothing! I would be there watching if I wasn't racing.
