What to Watch: RealTime Racing has recorded six wins in 10 tries in 2000, winning all five Speedvision Touring Car races with the Acura Integra side of the team and the most recent Speedvision GT event with the team's BMW M3. RealTime's six-consecutive Speedvision Touring Car race wins (dating back to Laguna Seca, 1999) is the second-longest winning streak in World Challenge history.
While no one has ever raced on the new Texas Motor Speedway road course, several Speedvision World Challenge drivers consider it home and, including 1999 Speedvision GT Champion Bobby Archer and the entire Viper Speed team, based in Fort Worth. Other Texas drivers in GT this weekend include Terry Lackey, Kelly Bradley, Don Istook and Charlie Barnes. In Speedvision Touring, look for Drew Hagestad, Ed Schairbaum and Fred Meyer.
It's hot in Texas -- over 100 degrees, and it's been 62 days and counting since the Dallas/Fort Worth area saw any rain.
