I happen to know, very well, most every Top 15 MW, GP, and GL amateur from last year and to my knowledge none of them raced for rule 1, but then again I know racers better by name and/or number and leathers then team. Perhaps you would enlighten us as to names. I do remember at Mid-America there were a couple of fast locals who usually raced CRA and had been there several times before, it was CCS first visit. Also, a few at Road America who were fast and not "regulars".
Judging by your 301 and being from Chicago, you might be James Casmay??? If so, then, yeah, you were tough to pass ;) :P
