Lots of wear rubbed off this turn...

The big engines make some noise on the backstretch. With a bold move, the Canadians now sit in the top two spots.

Turn 25 Summary

Rae races into Gresil on the 140's at 160 for a wear.

Both Haskell & Burnett drop the hammer and fly down the backstretch at 180.

Swaine has the initiative at 180 and takes the double slip from Haskell, denying it to Scarpino. With a blocked track he lays 2 chips on the forced pass (modified 5) and squeezes between the yellow & green cars. With no slip available, Scarpino loses a space to the chasers at 160.

Munies tests his acceleration with 1sp (modified 5) and runs out of the corner at 180.

Hoyt takes Samson at 80 for free. Snouffer clips a tire in Samson at 100 to pull alongside the #14.

Bauska gets initiative at 120, burning a wear through Samson and putting his big chip on the chance roll (modified 5). He keeps his car on the pavement! Harrington drops a wear in Samson at 100.

Turn 26 Summary

Rae finishes out Gresil at 160. Swaine keeps the pace at 160 and clips a tire in the Gresil 140's.

Burnett gets the initiative at 140 and takes the outer rail for free. Haskell must use a wear to slow his car down to 120. He runs into Gresil on the inner rail for free and earns the bonus from the #25.

Scarpino races into Gresil at 160's and drops a wear on the 140's before grabbing the tailpipe on the #18. Munies pulls up to Gresil at 160.

Snouffer gets the initiative at 180. To get there, he rolls on both the Acc and Top Speed tables with 2sp each (modified 5 & 6 respectively). Hoyt can't keep up at 140.

Bauska drops the hammer to 180. Thanks to the #94, he gets the double bonus and pulls ahead of the McDonald's Ford. Harrington, at 160, fails to request the slip (nor has submitted defaults) and settles in behind the #14.

Late adjudication today - I waited for a plot that I knew would be coming in. This is a solid group; I don't think we've had a single NPR in the race.

Rae pulls up to La Scierie at 160. Swaine is hot on this tail, also at 160.

Haskell finished out Gresil at 120. Burnett, at 140, pulls abreast of the #38.

Scarpino makes it 3-wide on the straight at 160. Munies runs the Gresil 120's at 140, tossing in a wear chip for the privilege.

Bauska takes the outer rail on Gresil at 140 for free. Snouffer, also at 140, opts for the inner rail and a tire. The bonus pushes him past the #28.

Hoyt drops the hammer to 180 and clips 2 tires in Gresil on the outside. Harrington pulls up to Gresil at 160 (no slip requested).
