Will Zack and Steve continue their run in NMRA SSO? It looks as if the '04 season belongs to Jim Blair, but things could be different in 2005. Jim will grad-uate up to the looming NMRA 10.5W-tire class, and SSO will be wide open again. The Posey family could well inherit the throne if its Sonic Blue monster continues to progress in its development as a small-tired race car.
