They are stacked & packed in front of the Senna's. As Gatlin's dad once said, "it's like stuffing 10 pounds of #$%^ into a 5 pound bag."

Turn 27 Summary

Galullo wends his way around Curva Do Sol and into the Reta Oposta at 120. Harley runs the 2nd Senna at 100 on the outer rail for free.

Ingraham clips a tire in the first Senna line at 80 and comes out the other side for free. Burnett burns 2 wear on the Senna line before taking the 2nd Senna 100's for free.

Hoyt pulls up to Senna on the inside at 100. Lind eases back to 100 and sets up the Senna line.

Scarpino races up to Senna at 160. He finds a hole but must forego the line to squeeze in. Harrington, also at 160, takes the inside lane in front of the narrowing track.

Snouffer takes the final slot on the 3-wide, also at 160. Bauska eases back the throttle to 140 and with the bonus, grabs the racing line behind the #11.

Simmerman, at 160, looks in awe at the mass of metal on the track in front of him. Francis tests his accelerator with 2s (modified 5) just to keep pace with the pack.

The secondary chase pack weaves it's way through the Senna S while the leaders jump out to a sizable lead. Can anyone catch the Carolina blue car in the last lap?

Turn 28 Summary

Galullo pulls up to the Lake Descent at 160. Harley rumbles down the back straight at 160.

Ingraham rounds the Sun Curve at 140. Burnett accelerates out of the Senna S at 160 to catch the side panel on the #78.

Hoyt, at 80, drops a wear in the Senna 60's before occupying the 80 spot. Scarpino burns a wear on over-braking to 80, takes the inner rail for 2 wear (he was not on the line) then pops to the outer rail 100's.

Harrington clips 2 tires in the Senna 60's at 100 before getting hung up in the 100's. Snouffer, also at 100, has no room for his car. He late brakes with a wear to 80, burns another in the Senna 60's, and settles in on the secondary racing line (per personal defaults).

Lind slows to 60 and opts for the outer rail in the top half of the Senna S for free. Bauska over-brakes to 60, using his last skill chip on the dice roll (modified 6). He gladly takes the line for free.

Simmerman pulls up to the Senna S on the line at 100. Francis represents the last car to enter the final lap at 160.

The Fruit Barrel Ford makes a last ditch effort to get back in the race but with a spin in the Senna S his fate is decided. He could still move up the leader board if other cars crash out or end up in the kitty litter.

Turn 29 Summary

Galullo clips a tire at 120 in the Lake Descent 100's. Harley burns a wear at 100 in the 80's and only has one tire left for the race.

Ingraham and Burnett trade paint down the Reta Oposta and flip spots in front of the Lake Descent.

Hoyt and Scarpino pull out of Senna at 140 apiece.

Harrington finishes out the Senna at 100. Snouffer runs the 2nd Senna line at 100 for free and is ready to challenge the #32 car.

Bauska loses his grip on the wheel at 100 and bobbles his car to the outside 100's for free (RM plot). Lind hops onto the 2nd Senna line for free at 100 before tucking in behind the purple racer.

Simmerman drops to 80 and scrapes off a wear on the Senna line before taking the next 80 for free. He has the tailpipe on the distracted Dr. Pepper Toyota. Francis brakes down to 100 w/ 1sp (modified 4) then careens into Senna on the line for a wear and a chance roll, using his big chip (modified 7). He spins out in the corner while listening to earful from his crew chief over the com.

Hoyt & Scarpino race down the straight at 160 each and maintain relative position.

Snouffer attempts 180 with 2s on the ACC (modified 10). A puff of smoke and some engine damage ensue. He re-plots at 160 which throws initiative back to Harrington, also at 160.

Lind rolls down Reta Oposta at 140 and stays on the bumper of the #32 via the bonus. Bauska maintains position behind the FedEx car at 160.

Simmerman pushes to 160 with 2s (modified 2) and, with the slip, pulls up next to the #23. Francis recovers from his spin at 40.

Bauska pulls into the Lake Descent 100's at 120 for his last wear chip. Francis moseys along at 80 to bring up the rear.

Galullo looks to have some company soon...

Turn 32 Summary

Galullo pulls up to the Duck Bill at 80.

Harley plots 80 with the intent of late braking to 60. You must move at least one space before a late brake so into the Esse he goes at 80 for his last wear and 2s on the chance table (modified 6). He manages to keep his tires on the pavement. The plot does say late brake w/ 1s (modified 3) so he drops to 60 and goes into Pine Tree for free.

Hoyt bottles up Little Orange at 100. Scarpino, at 120, gets shoved to the outside rail.

Both Snouffer and Simmerman bolt into Little Orange at 140 each.

Galullo led the entire race but knew he couldn't get the win without a chance roll. Bad things can happen on the chance table...

Turn 34 Summary

Galullo races into the Junction on the line at 120. He drops his last skill chip on to the dice roll but it just wasn't enough (modified 10). Fortunately, Doug gets away from his fiery wreck and will live to see another day at Indy. Ingraham pulls up to the Junction at 120 and now has an easy path to victory.

Harley eases his way through the Duck Bill at 40. Burnett scrubs off his last two tires in the Duck Bill at 80 and is looking good for a 2nd place finish.

Hoyt runs the Small Pine Tree at 60 for free. Snouffer continues at 80 and sits on the outer rail in Pine Tree.

Simmerman has the initiative at 60. He clips a tire in the Esse before running into the Pine Tree corner on the inside. Scarpino drops to 40, taking the Esse for free.

Harrington, at 80, burns 2 tires in the Esse then runs the outer rail in Pine Tree. At 60, Lind specifically opts for the outer rail in the Esse for a wear.

Turn 35 Deadline: Monday, September 3rd @ 8 a.m. EST (12 noon GMT)
The above will be a soft deadline given the holiday weekend in the U.S. Hard deadline is Tuesday the 4th, same time.
