Sounds like I’ll be sitting on the edge of my seat again watching this one.

Yes, go to the scca runoff page, go to live timing and you will see two windows to open.

Troy Ermish just ran did well in qualifying! Had a shunt yesterday.

After putting some more wing into the car, tire pressure adjust, couple other small tweaks, Collin picked up some time, 1:41:082 to Mike Lewis's 1:40:947.

Collin will run his harder tire compound to Mike running softer compound. Collin feels very confident in this tire choice.

Car ran well with no issues at all. We are giving it a clean and major once over eight now.

There are 10 listed for the race. The Goodyear guys are coming to our garage to check the tires, very cool.

Saw Vance Swift today.

Had very nice chat with Troy Ermish today, he edged out Joe Huffaker to take the pole. He is a very smooth driver, his 510 is quite quiet. Troy did 1:47:885 to Joe's 1:47:968. The are 20 cars in the GTL class, be another barn burner race. Paul Bunbury is 17th. Bill Okell is 15th.

Also met Duke today, had a nice chat with him also, nice to put a face to a name on our site.

Weather is in the high 70s low 80s, nice.

It was great to meet you today Keith! I was hoping to catch up with you guys after qualifying, but with how late everything was running, I had to take off. I was up at turn 4 during the GT3 session and could really tell that Collin was really hustling the car! Best of luck for the race!

I sat in the grandstand in turn 2 today and watched 5 sessions All I can say is all those competitors should sit there and see how Colin approaches that complex

So, you have to ask what happened.......
Yesterday on the way to the track,George's and I were a few minutes behind Collin on the highway.....we missed the turn in the sea of traffic.....and proceeded to have a wonderful tour of the Napa wine country....wow did we get turned around. Then, there was major power outage at the track with traffic lights out on the way.....never complain about Vancouver traffic....

Heading to the track now for car prep.

Derek, cruise by the garage today, we are on the east side of the track where all the private garages are.
