Tyler Kicera ran possibly the fastest Spec Miata lap that has ever been run at Summit, nailing down the pole with a 1:25.780 on a damp but drying track, around 4/10ths under the existing lap record. Despite running under the lap record myself, I am well off his pace. Q2 was hotter and not quite as fast. Mike Collins was up on the wheel as was Marc Cefalo
Tomorrow's Q3 session might be faster so there is still time to try and rearrange the grid. Hats off to Tyler for that amazing lap.

SUMMIT POINT, W. Va. (May 3, 2015) – A photo finish in Spec Miata highlighted a day of racing action on the final day of the SCCA U.S. Majors Tour at Summit Point Motorsports Park, hosted by the Washington D.C. Region.
Danny Steyn, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, clinched the Southeast Conference Championship with his first win of the season after four previous runner-up finishes. Steyn looked to be in control of the race in his No. 39 ADEPT Studios/Rossini/OPM Motorsports/Traqmate Mazda Miata, until a resurgent Tyler Kicera battled back from an early issue in the closing laps. As the pair exited the final corner and headed to the finish, Kicera’s No. 44 Rock-It Cargo/Tait Towers/Kicera Motorsport Mazda Miata had the run and pulled alongside at the checkered flag.
The finish was so close, it necessitated a visual ruling, with the judges on the start/finish stand noting that Steyn was ahead at the stripe, although Kicera’s timing transponder hit 0.005-second before Steyn’s.
Congrats to Tyler for a great weekend and Danny for winning the Championship and race Sunday. Looks like he has the nationwide points title as well as I don't see anyone putting up a much of a fight at this point? It has been a heck of a season for Danny, so well deserved.
