Months back, former ColdTrackDays correspondent turned internet celebrity, Linhbergh Nguyen, approached me, curious if I was interested in a feature on his friend's Toyota MR-S. At the time, the car was a road legal, weekend racer that belonged to So-Cal native, Kenny Chieu. Endless work went into Kenny's MR-S, readying the mid-engined roadster for weekend bouts at Willow Springs Raceway, and we were more than happy to feature Kenny's ride. A few weeks later, Linhbergh shot the car on the sunlit streets of Los Angeles, producing some rather stunning images.

Skip ahead. Kenny's MR-S is now a dedicated track monster, and will compete in the 2010 Redline Time Attack Series. Linhbergh and his partners at KINOD have sponsored the Toyota, fitting it with an appropriately appealing livery and, along with some additional modifications, hope to see Kenny's MR-S finish atop the RTA's 'Street Class.'

With the 2010 Redline Time Attack Series set to kick off in just two weeks time, stay tuned for continued updates on the KINOD MR-S and our friend Kenny Chieu! // [comment]
