Oh my.

Turn 9 Summary

Mossman clips a tire on the Big Bend line at 100.

Tatum hits the Big Bend 60 at 120 for 2 wear and goes to the chance table w/ his big chip (modified 7). His car spins and creates a world of havoc behind him. Coyle runs the outer rail on Big Bend at 120 for 2 wear, pulling up on the bumper of the #14.

Incorpora burns a wear in the Big Bend 80's and gets the bonus. LaMorte drops to 80 on the outer rail for free.

Torrezno, at 120, finds the track blocked. His defaults have him attempting a forced pass on the #2 with 2sp (modified 6). He's through! Hancock takes an RM plot at 80.*

There's no room for Ling's car at 100 and must drop a tire to get to 80. He grabs the line.

Ales over-brakes to 100 for a wear and slides in next to the #17.

Brown plots 120 but, like several before him, finds no room on this narrow track. He takes a brake test with 1sp (modified 10) and the bad roll costs him a wear and brake damage.

Orlandi wisely plots 100 and sits at the back of the peleton.

Brandt closes the gap at 160 but is probably pretty happy about the big cushion between he and the chase pack right now.

*Christina: That's two RM plots - one more and you are subject to being retired from the race.

Tatum runs The 90 in the middle lane for 2 wear then comes alongside the numbers of the #17. Orlandi, at 120, clips 2 tires on the line in The 90, swerving around the #50.

Brown takes the groove in The 90, burning 2 wear. He sets up a 3-wide just past the S/F line.

Brandt scrapes off a tire at 100 on The 90 line. When will the wear boss make his move?!

Turn 13 Deadline: Friday, March 10th @ 8 a.m. EST (12 noon GMT)
