I havent kept up with the TPS cars except for checking results now and then here at LSZ but they used to be fun to watch when they raced at CCS for sure. So I am not up to date with who is fast and who isnt. So for fun how about you guys predict who will get fastest time and who will win. I have always enjoyed watching GB race and will be pulling for him to do well but I dont know what to expect since I am not actively involved in the series. I am not familiar with Paul Jett. I remember Hexsel and it seems like I remember him driving one of GB's cars at one point. LeBarge I remember being tough along with another guy I cant remember, think he drove a Honda. And of course Lalo is a local that has a lot of seat time at the track, just dont know what kind of car he has speed wise. Merrell is obviously pretty fast as he has won more than once this year. Johnson looks as he could be tough as well based on finishes this year. Been awhile since they have competed here so It looks like its up for grabs as to who wins and who times fast. Without knowing much about the current series and just based on the past and what I have looked at here concerning this years races, my prediction for the pole will be Merrell or Johnson, edge to Merrell, with the win going to Merrell. Should be a great race to watch. GB is my sentimental favorite for sure.
