Here are the results of the Sebring Round of the Brownsey Camp Endurance Championship Car Picking Thing Presented by Andrew Cuomo's Weird Tug Hill Snowmobiling Tourism Ad (that didn't air until mid March).  Race result is the cumulative difference form position in class from winner for each class (low score good).

* Joel's scored half points for actually attending the race and sleeping in the back of his monster truck
*Philip's picks were each given a stop and hold +80 seconds for insulting the series technical directer on twitter
*Noah had to start from the pitlane for not having his picks in before qualifying
*Cyndy received an air restricter decrease of 0.8mm for the last 2 hours for making me go to a play and missing the last 2 hours of the race
*Peter scored maximum points for not selecting picks.  I bet a bunch of team owners wished they had done the same after the race today

Existential questions

If cars race in Kansas and no one hears them, do they make a sound? United Sports Car announces television schedule. Rumor is there will be no online streaming or MRN coverage either. I wonder how sponsors feel about this.
