I've noticed the LW Am grids have been pretty thin this year.  I'm hoping VIR is an improvement.  Who's going and what classes?  I'm in for LWSS, LWSBK, LWGP.  It would be nice to have enough numbers to qualify for contingency.

I think the AM LW grids this year are actually larger than last year, at least in the Atlantic series.

I wouldn't say "small" but just a few guys short of contingency.

I will be there, but I'll only see you for LWSS.  Feel free to come into the GTL, but stay out of ULSB. (:

You know what, I think I'll sign up for ULWSB too.  I forgot about that class....

What do you ride? SV? Come on in! We need as many as possible to keep the draft going down the that long straight.

You are Am and turn 19's at RRR?

yep.  did 4 weekends last year.  ran 25s when I started.  The 19.8 was done on a 86hp  SV sbk.  the best on my superstock bike is a 21.2

That's Expert times in my book. I think I could only muster a low 20 on my Ducati 800 but it is a well built 800. Gotta look back at the times on myracingbio. And some fast DS1000 Superbikes were about that range so I say to you, step up to the white plates.

Next year for sure.  Last year, Chris Birdsong was doing 18s as an AM at RRR and 36s at VIR!!!

This year we had experts doing 18.9 on the Ducati and SV. So with that said you are no slouch and in my book expert level. Yeah I know what makes an expert is not the speed but the consistency of making the right decisions and racecraft.

Tim Birdsong and Trey Yonce were doing 17s on WERA superstock SV650s at RRR.  I think Yonce got into the 16s.
