I might have to bring Tennessee's sedan. It was good enough to beat everyone else by a few laps at Revelation. (Other than mine) I am saving my motor for nats and probably will run his car at CP if I can drum up the courage.

As prior major races have shown, who wins is more about strategy and luck than skill when it comes to a long main. As far as qualifying is concerned, I'll place my money on either Barry Baker or Ralph Burch, neither of which runs for Trinity.

BTW, check which cars TQ'd the Texas Biggie and Speedline (the last 2 big races. I'll give you a hint, it wasn't a Reflex.

I think that barry and josh are some of the best drivers because of their suspension tunning skills and we all know what they can do behind the wheel these cars are so close the car does not really matter it will be luck and skill and who pays a hacker off to tack out certin people i should look into that job

I personally beleive that the car and driver make a difference. In all forms of racing there is always that driver or car that is one notch above the rest, for example formula-1. They are all really good cars and drivers but Michael Shumacher and Ferrari are a notch above this year. If you look at the results from the Speedline Grand Prix a couple months back and look at lap times you can clearly see that Baker was by far the fastest car, his lap times were about 1/2 a second faster than Cyrul and the nearest competitors in both qualifying and the main. He would of easily won the race but he got a batch of modified engines from Steve O'Donnell that he had problems with. Anyway, he just ran them straight out of the box with no break in and the engines ended up fouling a bunch of plugs in the main. As long as he doesn't break he is my favorite to win. Do you know if Kenji Osaka will be there? If he is he will definately be near the top. Cliff Lett should do well, he's an awesome driver. Later

Don't forget the little guys(local racers) at home tracks!
Like my daddy use to say ,Son you maybe good but there's always somebody better than you are.
There's alot of good driver that have just as good a chance to win as the big boys do!! I know I've don't it and you can to.
just be persistent and run your own race,in other words race the track not other drivers and you'll be real suprised as to how well you do. Good luck ,SEE YA'LL THERE.
