There's little to no reason to believe Randy wouldn't have broken 10 min on the full course. By how much nobody knows.I've been following Pobst since he wrecked the first car. Impossible not to like the guy.
The Plaid is FAST. I wouldn't be surprised to see Pobst break 10 min tomorrow. The hardest part of driving those cars seems to me to be the sirens.
I 'm a motorsports fan and appreciate Mobile 1 sponsoring the race. However, it wasn't a coincidence that they cut to commercial during what is unarguably the most disruptive run up the mountain since the races' inception. It wasn't a coincidence that the announcers didn't speak of Randy's run much.
6:57 for the section ran in a 4-door family sedan borders on unbelievable. Watch for more Plaid cars coming to other races soon.
Plaid will break auto racing like Jet boats broke Unlimited Hydroplaning in the 80's.
