The dice have struck again...

Turn 26 Summary

Incorpora, moves to the outer rail on the Hairpin at 100. Orlandi, also at 100, opts for the inside lane.

Tatum burns 2 tires on The 90 inner line at 100. Brown, at 100, takes the outside rail for a wear and blocks the 2nd line.

Ales clips 2 tires on the inside line of The 90 and tucks in between the #50 and the M&M's Ford. Facing a blocked line, LaMorte runs the outer rail in The 90 for a wear.

Mossman pulls up to The 90 on the inside lane at 160. Hancock flies down the straight, also at 160. Brandt uses some TLC on his broken engine at 120.

* As much as I wished to prompt Gatlin for a correction, RM's are instructed not to do so in league play. We takes what you gives us.

I do not correct my son in league play either. I make a comment or suggestion before moves, but do not modify his orders either.
