The high bid was 8 for the pole (amazingly, all skill). Three of four 100 start speed cars are in the first 2 rows with the fourth in the 3rd row. The 20 SS cars, as expected are starting towards the rear. The best bargain goes to Simmerman who finds the front row by bidding 1/2 point higher than Hoyt.
In the chart, Grand Prix points are being tracked. The drivers with green numbers would be advancing to C3 next season if the race ended right now (Harley wins the tie-break over Hoyt). Of course the race is not ending right now so much can change.Turn 1 Deadline: Friday, January 11th @ 8 a.m. EST (1 p.m. GMT)Reminder for new drivers: You can push your start speed by 20 mph. This entails a dice roll which you could then apply skill to. The dice roll charts can be found here: http://redscape.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=2587.
Drive fast, take chances, and good luck!
