Superlap predictions

No times this year, just top three in street, mod, and unlimited regardless of drivetrain.

Unlimited:
1. GST
2. Lyfe GTR
3. UMS EVO

Mod:
1. Cody Kishel
2. Professional Awesome
3. Zhong Cheung or John Carson

Street:
1. Mark Jager
2. Craig Peyron
3. Rifster Rif

I think Cody and Mark will set new track records. GST will be fast, but not record breaking (1:40.0?). FXMD will be at another event in January trying to better their record.
