The top four are into Beausset while the back-markers fumble the ball in one way or another.

Turn 37 Summary

Munies tackles Beausset on the inner rail at 80. He goes to the dice cup to exceed braking with his last skill chip (modified 9). A little smoke from the pads but the brakes survive. Haskell runs into Beaussett at 100 on the 100's.

Swaine, also at 100, stays on the bumper of the #20. Rae burns his last tire at 120 as he rolls into Beausett on the outer rail.

Harley pulls up to Beausset at 80.

Hoyt drops to 140 and clips a tire in the Signes 120's. Burnett, also at 140, drops a wear on the Signes line.

Bauska gets initiative at 180. His crew chief yells "Nooooooo..." into the comm as the car enters Signes at +40. With no wear to pay the fee, the result is an automatic crash. Snouffer over brakes to 120 and takes the line. He rolls the dice (naked 7) but still needs to toss in a wear chip to get there.

Harrington runs down Mistral at 180 but misses the line.

Hoyt gets reckless but it pays off!

Turn 38 Summary

Munies rolls into Bendor at 80 on the 80's. Haskell finishes out Beausset before pulling in front of Bendor at 100.

Rae has initiative at 120. He comes alongside the #20. Swaine, at 100, tucks in behind the Dewalt Toyota.

Harley enters Beausset on the 100's at 100. Burnett drops to 80, taking the inner rail in Beausset.

Hoyt plots 120 and is determined to have his way. He clips one tire and goes to the dice cup for a chance roll as he enters Beausset on the 80's (naked 6). He manages to keep control of the wheel, but then encounters the green Subway car. A forced pass attempt ensues and Hoyt sneaks his car past the #19 (naked 4). Sometimes crazy works!
Note: The chart indicates a block by Tim. There was NO block and thus no wear damage to Tim's car. I will correct the chart when able.

Snouffer runs the Signes line for free at 120. Harrington cruises Signes on the outer rail at 140.

Mater takes the smoking Dr. Pepper Toyota off the track while Bauska and his crew chief have a friendly discussion about what went wrong.

Turn 39 Deadline: Monday, January 22nd @ 8 a.m. EST (1 p.m. GMT)

The dice cup is feeling generous again...

Turn 39 Summary

Munies finishes out Bendor at 80 and still has a wear to play with.

Haskell clips his last tire at 100 through the Bendor 80's. Rae's eyes light up as the #20 clears out of the corner. He runs the Bendor 80's for free at 80 and makes it to the exit row.

Swaine enters Bendor at 100 on the outer rail. Harley continues at 100, following the #16 in the Bendor 100's.

Hoyt finishes out Beausset at 120 and races into the Bendor 80's. He burns his last wear and prays to the dice gods on the chance table (naked 6). He barely manages to keep his car under control while moving up another position.

Burnett continues through Beausset at 80. Snouffer drops his last tire at 100 on the Beausset inner rail. Harrington pulls up to Beausset at 120.

Turn 40 Deadline: Wednesday, January 24th @ 8 a.m. EST (1 p.m. GMT)

Mike crushes the full field with a lead of more than 5.5 seconds. Only two drivers, Rando and Tatum, repeat in the top 10.
