There were only 2 guys testing month before the race as far as I know, (only one racing), not the whole team. Some of the guys were building their NT1's at snowbirds week before. And what about the locals that finished 1st and 2nd, was this their 1st time at the track? I'm not sure what your point is and what you mean by "drama", they're excited about the results as they should be. Car performed really well even in the hands of J. Hudy who qualified/finished ahead of other pro drivers that are usually lot faster than him.

Team XRAY: Any chance we'll get to see the setup sheets for the 2007 Winternats? I'm very interested in seeing how the cars were setup - especially between each of the drivers.

Thanks!

They where there 1 month before to test so they knew what to expect. Burch and Baker had a chance to run a little on Sunday, on the first day of free practice. They had the engine guy from Italy to take care of engines, clutches, etc. So Mr Hudy, all this Drama is really necessary?
Hey Paolo was already on 23 lap pace since day one, but run out of fuel couple of times, got hit by a car at the counter in a fast qualify. It is clear that he was faster. Why is necessary to try to justify not TQ the event because whatever reason. I am sorry, this is becoming too long........Congrats again to Xray for their excellent performance

Might want to check your info....

1. Barry Baker ran the last state race down here and won. He was the only Xray driver.

2. The same "guy from Italy" that tuned Team Xray's motors was tuning Team Serpents motors. So don't try and make it out to be an advantage for Xray.

People love to read into things and make $hit up as they go along and it is comical to watch people spin themselves into a frenzy. How good is the NT1? Well as has been said before Juraj Hudy was in the B-main at the winternats...that accomplishment ALONE should be impressive enough...

And the car in your signature qualified some 6 seconds behind Paulo, so what does that mean?
Give it a rest!
