Well there is no talk of vir.. looks like 51 entries. Many first timers including myself, Justin Hille, Mike Novak and Spencer Rutherford.

 

 

Looks like a very stacked field! 

 

Danny called his shot and predicted a win on Facebook.. I think Davison has finally gotten under his skin :)   I would love to join the smack talk.. but I know when to keep my mouth shut.. No laps means keep quiet :)

 

 

very short turn around for me..  Just put shock back in car today and setting itt up tonight.. 

 

 

my top 5predictions... 

 

Buras in new ESR Krispy Kremer!

Lamb

Alex

Charbs fresh off his resurgence at Cota

Honestly...   Jim has been racing so long I was really surprised that VIR has somehow escaped his path...  

 

This weekend is going to be a blast..

Its because Team X-Factor isn't making the trip.  Nobody to hate on without us there.

I am going to put my money on the Shake and Bake team, Hille and Novak, i figure they can either wreck or pass the competition. I really wish i could come this weekend, but I am still on the mend. I have not been there since the repave. I love that track, just not the drive to get to the track.

I liked your predictions in the other VIR thread better :-)

Brian Price is registered in a VVT car. Not sure what equipment he's driving, but he can wheel...don't count him out.

Surprised Mr. Steyn isn't getting more love in the predictions.  He's got a gazillion laps there right, and many of them at or near the front of the pack? 

 

I'd be surprised if he's not on the podium once or more.
