It has been years sinceA Street Prepared has not beena battle between Tom Berryand Aaron Miller. Why shouldthis year be any different?
The Berry car has been forsale, but since it’s still theBerry car, we’ll pick him. DavidWhitener is working on a Teslaand may demonstrate thatit needs to move to SSP.
B Street Prepared could bequite a battle this year. AnthonyPorta should return in hisMazdaspeed Miata, and GregHahn is tough in his S2000, butrumor has it Tom O’Gorman isexpecting to be running here,and we simply don’t pick againsthim. We also hear JonathanLugod might make the trip,and if he does, we wouldn’t beshocked if he bests Tomo.
BSPL has been achampionship class most years,though last year was not oneof them. We’ll mention LaceyEdens here in the hope thisyear is a good one. BSP willalso get super serious if JessicaYeung makes it to Lincoln.
Our pick in C StreetPrepared is Billy Davisover Mark Shrivastava.
CSPL is wide open withthe Tovsen/Lace car off toa higher prep level. And,with that, it’s StephanieHumphries over Ally Arts.
D Street Prepared is setto be the first class with arepeat female winner, as TamraKrystinik won last year andshe continues to improve the
ONES TO WATCH
(LEFT) Cindy Duncan is the one to beat in FSL. (BELOW) In oureyes, Jennifer Bedell is the class of the SSCL field. (BOT TOM)Steven Duck worth is a fantastic driver, and he’ll be wheelinga fantastic car. Sounds like an FSP winning combination.
Alexandrova could challenge ifshe runs here, and CatherineTran is certainly capable.
Adam Barber coned away a
winning run in Street Touring
of a demographic with some of
us on the team writing this).
If there’s an STSL class, pencil
in Katie Crawford for the win.
Street Touring Hatch should
continue its streak of having
a new champ every year,
especially since Alex Piehl
appears to be off to an as yet
determined new car. That would
be a more impressive streak
were it longer than the two
years the class has existed. In
any case, we’re picking among
Peter Lindberg, Ken Roller,
and David Hedderick in some
remarkably diverse machinery.
STHL could have entries,
so we’ll guess that Crissy
Weaver will be bumped
out of the Open class due
to male family members
filling the available seats.
Super Street Prepared is
always tough to predict since we
don’t usually get to see these
drivers compete against each
other all that often. Given that,
we’re leaning heavily on last
year’s results, Eric Stemler gets
the nod over Ryan Johnson
and Alek Tziortzis, though we’ll
point out that with the huge
course dependencies between
the high-power Corvettes and
the high-handling Lotus that
course design could play a
big factor in the outcome.
SSPL had not had a class the
last couple of years, but Donna
Marx looks to be coming and
should have a co-driver, so all
it takes is one more entry to
make this a championship class.
Sport last year. We’re going to
fall back to the often repeated
“he won’t do that again” so
we can pick him. That also
answers the often repeated
“can he repeat” comment
about Eric Stoltz, at least for
our picks. The real answer will
come in September. We’ve got
to mention Mark McKnight,
Rich DiMarco, and Gerry
Terranova (who happens to be
