Well, someone had to get it started...

Here's my picks:

TT- Steinberger... Waaaay overdue!
Class 1- John Marking... Its time
Class 7- Doug Siewert
Class 10-Sean Sessa

3-peat for RJR in Pro-truck?? You've been in the high-desert sun a bit too long, Harpo!

Pro Truck- Alan "Fearless" Pflueger

Looks to be a great race overall!

In San Felipe they were very good, they are on there Country. Hope to see also another O/A by Vildosola T/T, they have beening working to have it on his best and put a new motor for this race and at least another race with about 10+ pits on the race, theres so good to be the locals.

I am leaning towards Salvador...
T/T.- Gus Vildosola puts a lot of effort into racing lately, plus the local advantage.

Hey Darren, Cameron Steele is racing with Dave Hendrickson in 1607. I think they can win it. In Class 10 Scott Sellars is going to take it. He is not on the entry list yet, but I know he is racing. Penhall in 12.

I saw Cameron at the start of San Felipe in King Dave's car. It was a blast for the past! Cameron and I had some good races in 5-1600 years ago. There is no doubt they can make it happen. I'm glad to hear Scott Sellar is racing, if so he is also my pick.

TT- Miller, him and his truck really shine in the long races.
Class 1- Joulson.
PT- Dickerson.
Class 10- Yee.
Class 8- Sykes.
Class 7- Turner.
7s- Bob Graham.
JeepSpeed- Billy Bunch.
Class 12- Penhall.

Is Ebberts racing in his usual car or will he be in the new one he's building? He would be my pick for class 1 but if he is in a new car than I would assume there might some bugs to work out before it becomes a winning car. Is his new car a Jimco too? They build awesome cars.

Cameron may have chance if the car is being prepped by Johnny Johnson. The king would do great if he slowed down a notch. He would run better if he sewed those pom poms back on his driving suit! They do well for a chassis that is literally close to 20 years old. It would be nice to see those guys win, maybe Cameron can get some footage on TV for us!

Last I heard Ebberts was going to have his new car build like john marking's class 1 Jimco with a tundra v-8 in it. Now too sure, anybody else know for sure?
