yes, kerry is the tech at mini of sterling. marshall is an accomplished autoxer from what i saw, who just received his mini cooper. brian also runs in that region and has a cooper s. all of them are quite proficient autoxers...even kerry who had done it twice i think. marshall and brian should be running at the prosolo in petersburg, va next weekend. and no VIR is not related...that guy (Mark O'Dell) is a road racer and autoxer who apparently uses VIR as a test track/home track. he's from NC, the other guys are from the DC region. thats all i know.
