Trigger option in effect! Early adjudication ensues with not much fanfare other than officially being in lap 2.

Important: I am on vacation for the next six weeks and adjudications will not be on a regular schedule. Both delays and quick turnarounds are possible. I will be using the trigger option - if all plots are in, I will adjudicate early, if possible, to help make up for inevitable delays. Getting plots in early would be helpful as we try to maintain the pace.I will always allow for 48 hours before the next deadline and will try my best to send out reminders. Your patience and understanding is appreciated over the next month and a half.

For the curious, we (wife and 10/12 year old daughters) are dragging our camper to Acadia NP, then to Montreal, a quick stop at Niagara, about 10 days with the in-laws in Chicago, a week at the World Boardgaming Championships in PA, then home. We'll spend a week at home before the beach trip finale in Ocean City, MD. I will be ready to go back to work after all that!

Turn 12 Results

Galullo drops down to a reasonable 140 as he crosses the S/F line and prepares for the Senna 'S'. Harley cranks the engine to 160 and makes up a bit of track on the leader.

Ingraham has the initiative and thrills the crowds as he drops the hammer to 180. Burnett, at 160, grabs the tailpipe on the big engine of the #78 car.

Bauska drops 2 tires on the Junction line at 140 and works his way around the big bend. Harrington conserves wear at 80 on the inside rail of the Junction.

Hoyt gets the initiative at 120 and clips a tire on the Junction line. Scarpino, at 100, runs the Junction line for free.

Snouffer burns a wear on the Junction line at 120. Lind readies his car for the Junction line at 80.

Francis recovers from his spin at 40. Simmerman decides to use up some tire, scraping 2 wear at 80 through the Duck Bill.

Turn 13 Deadline: Monday, July 2nd @ 8 a.m. EST (12 noon GMT)

Thanks for your patience!

Over the next 10 days, please try to get your plots in ASAP - I would like to get some quick turnarounds to both catch up and to prepare for another slowdown while the WBC's are going on. Regardless, you will always be given a minimum of 48 hours between turns.

Turn 15 Summary

Galullo races down Reta Oposta at 140. Harley, at 160, catches the leader.

Burnett takes the Senna 1 60's for a wear then sits on the Senna 2 line. Ingraham clips a tire in the Senna 1 line and gets pushed out to the Senna 2 100's.

Bauska, at 80, burns a wear in the Senna 1 line and gets hung up in Senna 2 on the outer rail.

All cars in the 3-wide post 100. Scarpino uses a wear for his over-braking then takes the line. Harrington slots to the inside. Hoyt is left hanging and brakes down for a wear before taking the line.

At 140, Lind has nowhere to place his car. He drops a wear on the late brake to 120. Snouffer, at 140, finds a spot for his car in the middle.

Simmerman slows to 160 as he crosses the S/F line. Francis brings up the rear at 160.

Please note the weekend deadline. Trigger option in effect if all plots are in early.

Reminder: In league races, RM's cannot ask for corrections, clarifications, or give plot advice. If personal defaults are not in place, Redscape defaults are used. Even if you had personal defaults for last race, you must re-submit them for the new season. Only four drivers currently have them in place. Here's the link: https://goo.gl/forms/E6C1eab8dZNBqcQT2

Turn 16 Summary

Galullo flies into the Lake Descent at 140 and burns 2 tires on the outer rail. Harley pulls up to the Lake Descent at 140 in the middle lane.

Burnett & Ingraham trade paint as they accelerate out of the Senna's at 140 each. Bauska could have increased speed to 100 but only plots 80 to finish the Senna's.

Harrington clips 2 tires in the first Senna 60's before taking the Senna 2 line for free. At 80, Scarpino runs the Senna 1 line for free then asks for the 100's in Senna 2.

Liind plots 140 then late brakes down to 100 with 2 wear. He runs the outer rail in Senna 1 for 2 wear before finding the open line in Senna 2.

Hoyt scrapes off 2 tires on the Senna 1 line at 100. Feeling bold, he then punches past the #11 car with 2s for a forced pass (modified 4). Another wear drops off for the corner but 3 spots are gained.

Snouffer over-brakes to 60 for a wear and runs Senna 1 on the outside for free.

Simmerman pulls up to the Senna's at 100 but with no lane designation, the car is placed on the inner rail. Francis, at 140, grabs the Senna line.

Not much changes with the spread out field (if only C1 were this stretched out - it's like racing on a go-kart track over there).

Bauska plots 120, rolls around the outer rail of Little Orange for free before late braking with 1s (modified 8). Lots of effort to hold his position but a moot point given what Lind did.
