Hey hey!  Finally got another episode of the CAMcast up!  No guest this episode, but I go over the current NASA Utah championship standings and then tease a few things.  I drink some water, drop some papers on the floor, all in half an hour.  If that’s not efficiency, I don’t know what is.

 

Feel free to listen to the episode here, or download it here.  Enjoy the episode, and I’ll see you at UMC this weekend!

It’s Monday, So Let’s Look at the Race Group Standings

NASA Utah2016  Round 1 Saturday Winners Michael Chandler CAMautoMag  -6

But at least it’s race week!  With that in mind, let’s take a look at how the point standings look:

In Super Unlimited the leader is the #41 Porsche of Air Power Racing.  Easy to do when you’ve got a very recently campaigned 911 GT3R.

Spec Z has DXDT racing in the lead, with Arthur Golwbiowski and Tom Kaminski hot on their heels.  Right now only 55 points separate first in class from last.

The one, and only, Chris Bond is in first in Spec Miata.  I would keep an eye on Matt Williamson, second in class, this season.  He could very well come up and take the season title.

Dan McKeever and one of the Ford Performance Racing School Mustangs are holding onto first place in ST2, with the Us Against One Clothing team hot on their heels.  Noticeably absent is Mike Mielke, last year’s champion.  Will we see him this season?  Only time will tell.

ST1 is being dominated by Bob Evans, in a car that I like to say is a rejected high downforce NASCAR prototype.  Somebody needs to join Bob, preferably someone in a Chevrolet.

Todd Green is holding off Ben Lamberson in PTE, proving that Paul Mitchell is more powerful than the Lord of the Rings.

By the power of spinning Doritos, Nathan Rohner has locked down PTB.  Someone, anyone, I beg of you: build a Z car and face off against Nathan.  We need that classic battle to play out, for the good of humanity.

McKay Snow is on top in GTSU, with Makes & Models and DXDT Racing in a tie for second place.  With Makes & Models fiddling around with a new car, and DXDT getting into the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series, this one could belong to the kid.

Darrell Troester in his white 996 GT3 Cup car have a commanding lead over Byron Smith in GTS4, but don’t expect the chasm to grow.

GTS2 has a pair of classic 911’s atop the class, but Ed Mineau has a 110 point lead in his black Porsche.

And that’s the current standings in the various classes in the Race Group.  In another post we’ll look at the TT standings, but right now digest the race group standings.  Come out this weekend, and be able to look at the battles on the West Track and say to yourself “Oh, this has championship implications”.
