Field definitely seems smaller than in recent years, I guess due to runoffs going west and people running NASA instead.

 

My podium picks if neither Buras or Haldeman race:

 

One Podium:

Drago

Pardus

Steyn

 

Second Podium:

Drago

Pardus

Burdzy

I have about 10 more customers planning on running, including Danny Bender who won last year and finished second in 2016.

 

Last 2 years Drago, Bender and Burdzy have come out of turn 14 as top 3 cars. Leader at 14 has not won the race!! I expect another great race.

 

I predict the same top 3 with Haldeman as the dark horse.

That is so wrong. Rudy does the best he can and enjoys racing. 

 

I'd say there was nothing wrong with the two 1.6's in the top 10 at Mid Ohio last weekend. Sommers did well at COTA earlier in the year, a bit of controversy included.
