Couldn't agree more with the Pro vs (some)gentleman drivers.

This racing is way more strategy and Teamwork in the Pits (say 30%) then Drivers (70%). Too much can go wrong with Pit Strategy and Pits stops.

The Mustang GT4 was fast enough to win but just had some bad luck. Nobody was faster then 2:16.7 (all weekend) and Billy J was .1 off of that. Then during the Race 218.0 was fastest and Kyle was .1 off that. He could have been on the podium but Skeen is crazy (good) and passes everywhere. Hard to keep him behind you.

Looking forward to the Next Gen GT3 and GT4 Mustangs, they will be competitive, you watch.

As for now, with two races to go, the Mustangs should win one of them.

I talked to Dean quite a bit about setup. For the life of me I can't remember his name but there was a gentleman that worked for Ford for quite some time both in Production and in motorsports, an absolute vehicle dynamics guru. He was the go to guy at the IMSA races on the GT4 Mustangs. He left Ford to do consulting work a few years ago.

On Edit: It was Jay O'Connell I was talking about.
Jay engineers the PF Racing cars.
