    If you DVR the races and you don't know the end of season results Do Not keep reading. I gave up waiting to watch the races so I looked up the results. The 2 Optimas finished 3rd and 7th. Mark Wilkins was in first but had 2 lousy finishes for the last 2 races. Kia did take 1st for the manufacturers points.

    That's their specialty, scoring points lol

    Seriously though, the PWC committee who approves mods to the race cars setup gave away the lead to the Camero cars a couple of races back and gave them more downforce on the front bumber valance.

    That change put those cars in the lead. So you sorta gotta pay attention to the approved changes to setups. They list all the mods on the PWC website in downloadable PDF files.

    My wife thought I was crazy when they showed the engine bays of the Kia Optima's I was pausing the DVR and snapping pictures to study

    Spoiler Alert! for DVR guys


    Dang shame, 1st round 1 kia took out the other kia on the launch!

    Wilkins breaks a half shaft in rd2 and the other kia overheats and couldn't finish the race.

    So, Rd 1 the 1st lap the kia comes out of pits and put down the single fastest lap all day, and rd2 sets fastest lap, they were poised to win driver and team 1st place! All they had to do was basically start and finish the second race with one car and BOTH were out of the race by midway!

    Sad turn of events indeed, but still amazing season! Kia is on the map!
