Where They Stand: NASA Utah TT Group

NASA Utah2016  Round 3 Michael Chandler CAMautoMag-9

Follow me on this: America loves a winner.  Paul Mitchell is a winner.  America loves Paul Mitchell.  Boom.  Todd Green/Paul Mitchell is atop the TTE standings at the moment, with Tyson Nisonger 60 point back.  Will we see a long and violent battle between the two?  Probably long, not really violent.  I’d describe it as tenuous, if you made me pick an adjective right now.

Trever Pope is still cleaning up in TTD.  He’s up 325 points, and is probably happy that I spelled his name correctly.

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the post: the current TTC points leader, MR. TOM ROGERS!  He’s barely holding off Kelly Fisher, who is only 5 points behind.

TTB is led by this nerd in his Miata.  Guess Darin got a little drifty in the early sessions on the last Saturday race day.  Guess who didn’t get any pictures of that?  ME!  But I did throw my Yi Action Cam (GoPro’s cost money!  Money I don’t have!) into his lap, right before he went out for his last session on that same Saturday.  Listen, the fewer questions you ask about that last part, the better.

Andy Moench is still leading TT3, ahead of another FRS/BRZ/GT86/whathaveyou driven by Mike Bratsch.  I’d keep an eye on James Pasquier.  He’s currently in fourth, but he’s won the last four events in a row, and that 993 911 of his is looking mighty quick.  And sharp.

Shawn Murphy, and his new fender flares I really want him to keep white, are leading TT2.  He’s ahead of a Beetle and yet another BRZ.  Oh, and Alex fixed the FoD, so prepare for things to get weird.

Coming in hot is TT1 leader David Gilliland.  He’s 75 points ahead of Jordan Priestley, and will have to deal with a Noble this weekend.  Or so the internet rumor mill tells me.

And in TTU we have Makes & Models sitting atop the heap, with Wade Hall and his monster Mustang coming on quick.  As you may remember, the M&M Huracan did a little off roading, and didn’t fare so well.  Brendon then went out in a 996 911.  Late last month, they picked up Maverick and Goose: a pair of Audi R8 LMS Ultras.  Will we see them this weekend?  Is the Huracan going to turn some laps in Mad Max form?  Answers to those questions, and more questions, will be revealed this weekend at Utah Motorsports Campus!
