(LEF T, from TOP to BOT TOM) David Daughterywill be back in B-Spec, on a mission to claimSCCA National Championship number 11.
Joe Moser made the jump to STL this yearand has quickly proven to be the one tobeat. “Irish Mike” Flynn is back in STU, andwe fully expect him to close the deal.
reveals. “The car won the Indianapolis
Runoffs in 2017 with Adam Roberts
behind the wheel, so I have a strong
legacy of performance to uphold.”
STL always delivers exciting racing, and
this year’s entry list promises close battles.
In particular, 2018 and ’ 19 NationalChamp Danny Steyn will be there, and heagrees that Moser is the driver to beat.
“The prediction is spot on, 100percent,” Steyn says of our assessment.
“We raced at the Sprints, and Joe
Moser is an exceptional wheel man.”
Moser’s not rehearsing his podium
speech just yet, however. “Several drivers
have a strong chance of winning,” Moser
admits, “including Danny Steyn, Denny
Stripling, Max Gee, and Justin Elder.”
SUPER TOURING UNDER
“Irish Mike” Flynn took third place at lastyear’s Runoffs, but we think he’ll hit thetop step of this year’s Runoffs podium.
“My wife bought me this BMWfor my 50th birthday,” Flynn says.
“It used to be a Techmark World
Challenge car, and it’s the perfect car
for STU, I think. It’s not the strongest
car, but I think it’s a very strong car.”
Flynn got close to the STU podium
with fourth-place finishes in 2011 and
’ 12 at Road America before moving away
from the class. Now with his ex-World
Challenge BMW, he’s checking his mirrors.
“They’ve all got me worried,” Flynnadmits. “Elivan Goulart in the Lotus isvery fast, and he’s a top driver. I’d put himup at nearly number one. Then there’sa sleeper car out there, and it’s Kip VanSteenburg in the Porsche 944. He wonEP twice and he is wicked strong. Thenthere’s Chris Haldeman in the Honda.
He’s a fantastic driver. There’s five or
six cars that could win this thing.”
“Riley Salyer,” Daughtery says.
“Man, that kid is really gettingit, and he’ll be right there. TonyRoma will be very tough in hisSonic, as will Brandon Vivian. Theywere both top three last year.
“Rob Piekarczyk is amazinglystrong, [and] he ran very well at theJune Sprints,” Daughtery continues.“Fritz Wilkie with the Fiesta, he set atrack record at the Sprints, so he’sgoing to be very strong. And ChrisTaylor has come into his own.”
SUPER TOURING LITE
Joe Moser has moved over from EP thisyear, after several front-running attemptsin the class. This year, we think he’s gotwhat it takes to lead at Road America, andhe’s got a very special motivation to win.
“This is my first year of racing without
my dad,” Moser reveals. “Not only was
he my best friend, but he was my long-
time racing partner and more recently,
my crew chief. We won a lot of races
together. He was the best, and racing the
Runoffs won’t be the same without him.”
Moser will compete in a Honda CRX
with STL history. “It’s a new car to me, but
it has a long tradition of winning under
the ownership of Sam Myers,” Moser
