    it appears the WRX is no longer the overwhelming dominate force in STX

    Interesting looking at the recently completed Nationals- btw congrats to Chris Fetner on his win in STX- much deserved (he does drive a WRX )

    looking at the top 15 drivers (32 driver class)- only 5 are WRX's (1st,4th,5th, 9th, 12th)- eight BMW's!!! (2nd,3rd, 6,7,8, 13, 14, 15) and two VW R32's (10,11)

    the BMW's were a mixture of 325 and 328is's and a couple of 88 (E30) M3's- obviously they have come a long way in getting sorted for the STX class of late

    Interestingly on the tire front - the top 15 was split evenly between Yokohama and Bridgestone

    i'd say that's still a domination on the part of the wrx, especially considering the 06-07 are stu, are they not?

    That is interesting. Still a good showing though.

    What did the results look like previously?

    top two spots in STU were STi's (sme car- driver/co-driver)- 8 of the top fifteeen, the rest were EVO's and a M3 or two

    previously more heavily dominated by the WRX in STX, still obviously a good platform to be in

    Interestingly in STS Bridgestone captured 12 of the 15 top spots- only one Yokohama, one Falken and one Hankook

    Can anybody post a link to the results?

    I'm curious to see what cars finished where in a few different classes.

    I would also like to see the specific results. What specific Bridgestone and Yokohama tires were used?

    It's interesting that 7 of the 9 WRX's in STX were Bugeyes.

    the newer WRX's are 2.5 l so they are bumped into STU and have to play w/ the STi's and EVO's, but your right the 04/05's aren't as well represented
