    In the Street Tuner class, Owen Trinkler piloted the No. 197 Cruise America/4 Winds RV Mini Cooper S to the pole with a time of 2:10.113 (90.475 mph), as the car was re-added to the field following an incident during Friday's promoter testing day.

    Trinkler's No. 197 was withdrawn early Saturday morning after damage from an accident Friday. Though Trinkler was added to the team's No. 196 Mini Cooper S, the team worked diligently to piece the car back together and re-added the car to the entry list in time for it to practice Saturday afternoon. Trinkler then took the No. 197 out and earned the car's best time on its second lap.

    "I know we've got a good car, but I know the Subaru is going to be better in the longer runs than us," said Trinkler, who earned his second pole in the last three races. "We can run a quick lap right out of the box, but we're going to slow down a little bit. We're happy - another pole for us this year."

    No. Any KONI series race they televise is usually aired 2-3 weeks after the fact (e.g., the Miller race from 18 Sep was on Speed this afternoon), but Grand-Am's schedule says VIR is "NOT TELEVISED." :mad5:

    So, the best racing on TV is, uh, not on TV.

    Lose.
