    With the large amount of entries for V2R in the unlimited classes, who's gonna be the number one fastest come qualifying day?? Gonna be a bit more even now that the trucks and buggies are mixed.

    My Guess,
    1.#40 Huffman, with Whelchel behind the wheel, Letner 1st 1500. I think with the track conditions later in the day, our fastest guy will probably be a starter in the top 20.

    odds have shown the fastest guy almost never wins. As far as I can remember there was only 1 person who won a BITD race from the pole- Mark Weyhrich at the Las Vegas 300 this year. Maybe starting 2nd is not so bad??? It sure will be fun watching everyone go nuts trying for that pole award though.

    Depends on the conditions......starting with high visibility is key, but too much emphasis on starting positions may cause probs for the race, or even a dnf. We'll see, I'm pumped!:D:D

    Heck yea! we have been doing alooot of testing with our new Patton motor with an extra 150 more hp! Hopefully this will help in qualifying, out of the corners faster.

    Im pretty sure there's alot of pressure starting from the pole. Seems the fastest qualifier come raceday usually gets a flat shortly after the start or he wrecks. 2nd wouldn't be to bad, just crusin behind the leader waitin for him to make that mistake.
    *Best luck to TSCO Team on going for a repeat this year*

    With over 60 unlimited vehicles (between Trick Truck & Class 1500) starting position will be key. That's why we're putting Tim Lawrence in for qualifying (no pressure there at all !!!)

    Not neccessary 1-2-3 off the line but certainly top 10-20 to have any chance as dust will make it nearly impossible to pass based upon what we found at the pre-run.

    Plus with substantially less miliage this year, less time to make up ground thru attrition.

    I got to go with BJ Baldwin on the pole, Chad Ragland #2, and probably Herder and Hovey the next two just don't know in which order
