Builds are in!

Identical builds include Burnett / Harley, Hoyt / Harrington, and Lind / Francis. Only one car looking to jump out of the gate at 100 SS yet five cars with a 20 SS. Three cars with big 180 engines for the straights and no putt-putters. Bauska under-built his car but, per Redscape House Rules, the build will stand.

Pole Bid Deadline: Friday, June 1st @ 8 a.m. EST (12 noon GMT)

For new drivers, your pole bid can include both wear (1 point) and skill (1/2 point). Ties are broken with a dice roll.

Here are the grid positions.

Not surprisingly, the 100 SS car went high. What is surprising are the 20 SS cars vying for early position. This could make for an interesting start!

1. Harley: 4w + 3s = 5.5 (50)
2. Galullo: 5w + 1s + 5.5 (22)
3. Ingraham: 3w + 2s = 4.0
4. Harrington: 2w + 3s = 3.5
5. Hoyt: 2w + 1s = 2.5 (78)
6. Snouffer: 2w + 1s = 2.5 (25)
7. Burnett: 1w + 3s = 2.5 (6)
8. Bauska: 2w + 0s = 2.0 (79)
9. Scarpino: 1w + 2s = 2.0 (50)
10. Lind: 0w + 3s = 1.5
11. Francis: 0w + 1s = 0.5 (81)
12. Simmerman: 0w + 1s = 0.5 (35)

Five cars push the start with all but one succeeding. A first turn NPR from Scarpino - wake up Federico!

Turn 1 Summary

Galullo grabs the first Senna S line at 100. Harley sets up the line at 60.

Ingraham & Harrington both push the start with 2s (modified 6 each) and stay in formation.

Hoyt and Snouffer both push the start w/ no modifiers (naked 8 & naked 10, respectively). Hoyt barely scrapes by while Snouffer mis-shifts and re-plots to zero. He may use his ACC next turn.

Burnett pushes to 80 with 1s (modified 5) to make it 3-wide near the front. Bauska, at 60, tucks in behind the #32.

Scarpino takes an RM plot at 60 to the outer rail. Lind mis-plots at 40 (his SS is 60).* Ignore the dice roll in the chart - it was not necessary.

Francis, at 60, slides in between the #'s 1 & 11. Simmerman takes the start easy at 20.

* Note: In league play, the RM's are not to ask for corrections or clarifications to plots.

Turn 2 Deadline: Wednesday, June 6th @ 8 a.m. EST (12 noon GMT)

Bauska has initiative at 120 but with no room at the inn, late brakes to 100. He has inside position. Hoyt NPR's and his RM plot puts him at 80 with no line access.

Scarpino plots 120 and is quite lucky to find a space to squeeze into.
