Glad to see them back at Laguna. Hopefully, there will be an increase in car counts next year -- along with a television package that does this series justice.

Thanks for the info.

I just wish they would come closer to Texas and it would be nice if SPEED (series sponsor) would actually show the damn races.

Hey Havelanche.........

"... My boyfriend finds the K PAX car hilarious...."

Actually there are 2 of them, one driven by Randy Pobst (lives near Atlanta - Gainesville) and the other by Andy Pilgrim. Last week Andy finished 1st and Randy 2nd. Impressive, as Randy had to serve a penalty for moving before the start, so he came from the back of the pack.

I don't know why K-PAX switched to Volvos, maybe they were bored by winning the past 2 championships in Porches.

And why Speed shows these races ONE time - weeks later - is sick. Other stuff is re-run like mad, go figure.

I'll be at the October Laguna race, can't wait..............

I agree, Speed's coverage of their own sponsored event is rather lackluster. Thanks for the info and enjoy Laguna!

I will be at road atlanta myself allong with a ricer friend im trying to convert lol. IDK he sees that fernandez acura running saturday and I think ill loose him for good. Any hoo what day is the class of cars like the GTO running and will the goat be there? I want to go and will definately be there saturday for big show but cant find events schedule to tell what day is other races except the historic race. This will determine if I buy 1, 2 or 3 day pass. Cant wait till then allways a great show to see, makes nascar look like the joke it is IMHO.
Peace and Beer
