No changes in relative position this turn while two more cars get the white flag.

Turn 23 Summary

Peeples burns a wear at 100 through the Senna 80's. Burnett also drops a wear at 100 on the same route.

Simmerman clips a tire in Senna as he rolls into the corner at 120. Harrington stays on his heels at 120, no wear expended in Senna... yet.

Scarpino scrapes off two wear on the Wall of Champions line at 120. Weisen, at 100, tosses two wear in the 60's.

Ingraham pulls up to the Wall, on the line, at 120. Bernhardt, at 140, grabs the bumper on the #78.

Harley uses his big engine to hit 160 on the Casino straight.

Bertaiola pushes his stressed engine to 100 (naked 8). Lind takes a fairly innocuous NPR to finish out Epingle at 80. A busy Prezcon weekend may have contributed to Michael's omission.

Mater makes an appearance to haul Hoyt's smoking wreck to the paddock while the driver gets checked out by the medics.

At 120, Scarpino's route is blocked. With no alternatives provided, he goes to his personal defaults which say to roll the dice on the chance table as he attempts the inside line (naked 12). Egads - boxcars!

The podium is looking firm with Peeples already giving a victory wave to the crowd. Simmerman should be able to push past Burnett with his wear advantage for 2nd and the series championship. Any drama that remains are in the two-by-two battles for 4th and 6th. The promotion schedule looks solid as well, with the podium finishers and Ingraham advancing to C3. Harley would need to pass three cars to bump Peeples, something that does not seem likely to happen barring more crashes.

Turn 31 Summary

Peeples rolls past the Casino at 140, on his way to his first Redscape victory.

Burnett punches up to his max speed at 140. Simmerman, also at 140 and with the bonus, pulls up on the numbers of the Subway Toyota.

Harrington finishes out the Hairpin at 100. Weisen clips 2 tires on the outer Hairpin line at 120. He has the bumper of the Wade Foundation Ford.

Bernhardt addresses the Hairpin on the outside line at 140. At 160, Ingraham pulls up into the exhaust of the baby blue Smithfield machine.

Harley, at 100, grabs the C8 line. Bertaiola runs to the inside of the Richmond Chevy at 120.

Lind misses his chance to increase speed in the Concorde; he stays at 80.

Mater makes another appearance while Federico wipes the soot from his face and joins Mike in the pits. A shot and a beer for both before popping another bottle of bubbly.

Barring a mis-plot, we will have a victor next turn. The back markers will extend our race for another few weeks, though!

Turn 32 Summary

Peeples scrapes off his last bit of rubber in the Wall of Champions. He takes the line for free and is poised to cross the finish line next turn.

Simmerman has the initiative at 160. He takes the lead for the series championship and is not likely to give it up. With no wear left, Burnett slows it down to 120 with the Wall in sight. He will have some company next turn.

Harrington rolls past the Casino at 160. Weisen pushes his big engine to 200 w/ 2s (modified 5). The crowd roars with approval as he passes the purple car then does him the favor of putting him in a slip position.

Bernhardt clips a tire on the Hairpin line at 100. He's got one left for the Wall. Ingraham drops a wear on the same racing line, also at 100. This battle pits a bigger engine against more tread.

Harley has the initiative at 100 and takes C8 for free on the line. Bertaiola runs C8 for free on the 80's at 80. He blocks the line but Harley was already through.

Lind knocks down one of his wear at 120 on the C8 line. He has 5 wear for 2 corners. I'm sure he'll find a way to use them for good purpose!

Bernhardt pushes his engine to 180 with 2s (modified 9) and needing every one of those skill chips. Ingraham goes to the dice cup on the ACC with his last chip (modified 6) then again for top speed (naked 3). He has the bumper of the baby blue Smithfield car.

Harley grabs the outer line for Epingle at 160. Bertaiola plots 140 but his beleaguered engine will only allow 120 with a push using 2s (modified 3). Lind pulls up on the numbers of the #96 at 160.
