As the start draws closer, you double-check everything you can, cross your fingers for the things you can't control, and you get ready to rock and roll.
The start was looking pretty good for the #4 Prototype Development Group GTM. By their second lap, they were already running ~2.5 seconds faster than their 2013 qualifying time (which was likely run on a damp track), and ~1.5 seconds faster than their 2012 qualifying time.
