Today's race at 4:20 EST. Qualifying for it is based on the fastest laps from yesterday's race. That puts O'Connell and Pilgrim in 6th and 7th starting position, respectively.

One more year

We were informed @ Road Atlanta that Cadillac signed a 2 year deal to race in the World Challenge series. If you want to see them race, you need to do it in 2012, the last year of the deal. We should find out next year what their future racing plans are.
