K-PAX Racing's Volvos Run Second and Third in Combined Practice at VIR

Alton, VA (September 10, 2010) - The K-PAX Racing Volvos posted two of the three fastest times in Friday's combined practice sessions for the Race Keeper World Challenge VIR Grand Prix presented by Special Ops Watch at Virginia International Raceway. Andy Pilgrim's best combined time was a 1:57.310 (100.349) in the number 8 K-PAX Volvo S60, which was a little more than three tenths behind the 1:56.957 (100.652) posted by Kuno Wittmer in a Dodge Viper. Right behind Andy on the speed charts was his teammate, Randy Pobst, who was third fastest in the number 8 Volvo S60, with a quick lap of 1:57.683 (100.031).

"So far, so good," Andy said. "The car's handling well, the set up is good - everything seems to be good so far. It's a narrow track, so traffic is going to be the name of the game, and not making mistakes," he explained. "The whole idea will be to get out front and stay there."

Randy Pobst had similar thoughts regarding the performance of the number 6 K-PAX Volvo S60. "I'm really pretty darn pleased, and all we've done is try things and go back to what (team engineer) Will Moody had set up when we rolled off the trailer," he said. "We are going to have a monumental battle on our hands. It's going to be a great race. I think the competition is very strong, but I think we have enough to run with them," a confident Randy remarked.

Qualifying is set for Saturday, September 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., and the first of two races in the Race Keeper World Challenge VIR Grand Prix presented by Special Ops Watch will take place from 2:35 p.m. to 3:25 p.m.
