The wee engines battle while the bigger power plants bide their time...

Turn 15 Summary

Harley careens around the outer rail in T3 for 2 wear before blocking up the line. Benham is unfazed at 60. He runs the line for free.

Hoyt takes his 80 plot through the inside 40 and deposits 2 wear to take the (temporary?) lead. Bernhardt didn't like what he saw at 100 so he brakes down to 80 with a wear. He then knocks back 2 more wear on the inner 40 and will clear the corner.

Fritz spends wear like it's going out of style. At 100, he clips 2 in the T1 60 before dropping another 2 on the T3 line. Hudson runs the T1 line for free at 80.

Harrington follows the line of the blue Chevy, also at 80. Scarpino catches the conga line at 100, burning a wear on T1.

Snouffer mis-judges his distance to the corner and tears into T1 at 160. Fortunately, this turn has a run-off lane to the outside, which he takes for 2 wear.

Bauska finishes out T16 at 100. Weisen rolls through T15 at 100 on the line.

The dice are friendly this Monday morning.

Turn 16 Summary

Hoyt tries to coax a little more from his engine as he pushes to 140 w/ 1s (modified 9). The pistons complain a bit but come through. Harley pulls alongside, also at 140.

Benham has the initiative at 140 but not without an appeal to the dice gods (naked 7). He grabs the bumper on the blue machine. Bernhardt, at 100 and the bonus, comes into the draft of the orange racer.

Fritz finishes out the T3 line at 100 and parks to the outside to shake any tails. Hudson, at 100, turns skill into wear as rolls on the chance table w/ 2s (modified 5) and, with the addition of 1 tire, safely navigates the line.

Harrington drops to 60 and takes the T3 line for free. Scarpino is ready for a blocked line and runs the inside 40 for 2 wear at his plotted speed of 80.

Snouffer finishes out T1 at 100 before setting up T3 on the line. Bauska addresses T1 on the line at 140. Weisen runs the T16 line at 100 for free.

Everyone is in lap 2 with most cars spread out along the big straight.

Turn 17 Summary

Scarpino keeps the pace at 140. Harrington drops back a car length at 120.

Snouffer taps down to 60 and avoids wear expenditure on the T3 line. Bauska rubs out three tires between the T1 and T3 lines at 100.

Bernhardt pulls up the T4 on the line at 120. Fritz comes right up in his exhaust at 140. Hudson, at 140 and the bonus, takes the inside for a position gain.

The big pack of cars in the front shuffle around a bit. There's one car with a tire advantage and one with an engine advantage in that group, albeit they have some cars to pass. Plenty of open space with the back markers but they have some track to make up.

Turn 22 Summary

Harley finishes out the horseshoe at 100 via the 80's with already paid wear. Hoyt does the same and blocks up an exit row.

Benham has initiative at 140. He takes the banked 100's for 2 wear before sliding over to the 120's. Fritz, at 120, clips a tire in the 100's and pulls in behind the #24.

Hudson gets the initiative at 120. He burns a tire in the 100's and gets the bonus space with the slip. Bernhardt, at 100 and the bonus, rolls around the horseshoe for free.

Scarpino enters T10 at 100 for free.

Harrington runs the T6 & T8 lines for free at 120. Snouffer, at 140, scrapes off a tire in T8 to pull even with the purple & white machine.

Bauska hits T6 on the line at 140 for free. Weisen uses his big brakes to bring his speed down to 80, scrubbing a wear on the T4 line.
