No traffic issues today...

Turn 22 Summary

Simmerman runs the big C13 corner at 160 for free (outer line). Burnett preps the same line at a speed of 160. Harley accelerates to 160, matching the corner speed limit. He sits 2 spaces back of the green machine.

Scarpino runs the C11 line for free at 120 and clears C12. Ingraham, also at 120 and with the bonus, takes the C11 line then uses the extra space to get into C12 on the outer rail.

Hoyt finishes C10 at 100 and also clears C11 on the inside. Harrington completes C10 via the 60's and he settles in on the tailpipe of the #24.

Weisen clips a tire at 80 through the C10 60's. He grabs the C11 line. Peeples conserves wear at 80 through C10.

Lind dives into C8 on the line at 100 for 2 wear. He then continues his rampage through C10 on the 60's for another 2 wear and moves out of last place!

Michael, it has been brought to my attention that I missed docking you 2 wear in T10. We do not currently have a rule on how to handle lengthy intervals between an error and it's detection. It happened in another circuit where, after consultation with several other RM's, it was decided to reduce wear by 1 instead of 2. I will follow that solution. There will be a rule in place to address errors prior to race 3. Also, any vigilance you could provide on catching mistakes is appreciated. Please accept my humble apologies.

The cars stay spread out as the leader enters the final lap.

Turn 23 Summary

Simmerman rolls out of C13 at 160 and has the white flag as he enters the final lap. Burnett and Harley stay hot on the leader's tail, both taking the outer line in C13 for free at 160.

Scarpino, preps the outside C13 line at 160. Ingraham does the same and sits 2 spaces back.

Hoyt runs the C12 140's for a wear at 160. He tucks in behind the #78 car. Harrington saves wear at 140 through the C12 140's and takes the default inside lane. He can't get the outside line for C13 but he has two others available next turn.

Weisen wraps up two corners at 120 for free (C11 & 12). Lind clips a tire on the C11 line at 140 before taking the C12 140's for free. Peeples runs the C11 line for free at 120.

A few position battles are shaping up...

Turn 24 Summary

Simmerman sets up C1 on the green line at 160. Burnett, at 160, is ready for either line through C1. Harley drops the hammer to 180 w/ 1 skill (modified 7). He grabs the wing of the Subway Toyota.

Scarpino knocks down C13 on the outside line at 160. Ingraham burns a tire to ram his car through the C13 lane at 180. Hoyt, at 160, takes one slip to stay on the tailpipe of the #78. Giving him the double slip would have taken the car off line and cost wear - instructions I did not have.

Harrington runs C13 on the middle line at 140 for free. Weisen rolls into C13 on the outer line at 160.

Lind finishes out C12 at 140 and preps C13 on the inside line. Peeples, also at 140, sticks to the #11 car like glue.

An RM plot and a damaged engine supply the drama for this turn...

Turn 25 Summary

Simmerman knocks down a wear at 100 through the C1 green line.

Burnett slows to 100 and finishes out C1 on the green line for a wear. Harley plots 120 then grabs the dice cup on a late brake attempt (naked 7). He takes the C1 red line for 2 precious wear.

Scarpino drops the hammer to 180 and sets up C1 on the green line. Ingraham slows to 140 as he moves into the final lap. Hoyt takes an RM plot of 100 and hits the Starbucks drive-through. Maybe that'll wake him up! (I know Mike is having internet issues but the race must go on)

Harrington rockets into the straight at 200 and an engine test (naked 11). The engine coughs and says NO! A re-plot of 180 still allows him to pass the distracted NAPA car. Weisen finishes out C13 at 160.

Lind slow plots the inside line of C13 at 100. Peeples, with his line blocked, takes the 120's for free and settles back in behind the #7. A few curse words are heard through the radio...
