off to HS, that leaves a pretty
easy path for Kristell Janusz
to take another jacket.
X Prepared has seen some
changes in their minimum weights.
So far, that does not appear to
have completely upset the status
quo, as Fred Zust still looks to
be the guy to beat in his Lotus.
Mazda drivers Andy McKee, Jason
Collett, Michael Moran, Zachary
Sober, Eric Anderson, and John
Hunter will try to stay ahead of
Chris Dorsey as he continues to
develop his Toyota Corolla GTS.
XPL is one of those catchall
classes that may end up
collecting a number of L-class
drivers seeking championship
status. Making predictions in
that situation is very tough. Kim
Bollinger has a real XP car to
drive. We’re going to make a crazy
prediction that the planets align
so that Alex Zust jumps over from
the Open class to take a jacket.
C Prepared will see a few
drivers hop over to the other
party category of CAM. Some
may not make a decision until
September. Others are recovering
from mechanical issues, and we
definitely don’t know the prognosis
for those when we are putting
these picks together. Robert Lewis
is building a new motor, which
can be good or bad. That affects
whether or not his co-driver
from last year Tommy Pulliam
will have a chance to defend
his championship. We’ve got a
fairly safe bet in Mark Madarash,
assuming he doesn’t jump to CAM.
Tracy Lewis has managed
to compete successfully in
CPL despite ever-growing
We’re expecting the new
motor to work out for her.
Somehow, D Prepared is a
Texas thing. The top five finishers
last year were Texans. We aren’t
sure about the top five, but if we
had to guess, we’d put Todd Roberts
on the top of this particular heap.
We don’t see a whole lot of the
E Prepared drivers during the year.
Ben Wagstaff looked quick in New
Jersey, and Jason Frank will be
driving last year’s winning car in
a one-off romp. But we’ll go with
a crazy pick: Patrick Washburn
in a new car that is still being put
together as summer starts.
F Prepared has us flipping a
six-sided coin, which is great to see
in a class in the Prepared category.
Wes Hughson, John Thomas, Josh
McCall, Alex Jones, and David
Montgomery are all contenders
