KC should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridKC should be qualifying in the top 5 on the grid
Kenny Brack of Team Rahal completed over 100 laps of tire, aerodynamic and engine testing at Texas Motor Speedway yesterday. He ran with new Firestone tires, various wing configurations including the current variations of the Handford device, and several pop-off valve setups. His best lap speeds averaged 225 mph with many down near 215 mph. The track is very wide and should make for great racing according to Brack. The 34 inches of boost being run along with one of the Handford devices should keep speeds down to a reasonable level according to CART officials.

If CART can keep the teams around the 225 mph mark they should not exceed 235 mph on the straights and should be able to run closely and draft one another quite a bit.

That's good. Now they can work on getting the speeds down on Cart's two other Superspeedways.

Maybe Kenny is just slow. Get the Penske boys out there and we'll know.

But personally I think 225 is plenty fast enough.
