I missed Ty's top speed test w/ 2s. It was just rolled with a successful '3'. The skill will come off next turn on the chart.

Thanks to Ty for pointing out my omission!

A new race leader emerges!

Hudson, at 100 and with the rolling roadblock in front, takes the middle 80's to burn off some speed and expends a wear for the corner. Scarpino runs the T5 line for free at 100.

Fritz puts his new found lead into 'no doubt' territory. There is a strange aversion to the racing line at Turn 6.

Turn 23 Summary

Fritz knocks down 2 wear in the T8 80 spot for the outright lead. He locks into the inner rail in T9. Kubala runs the T8 line for free at 100 with both inside/outside options still open.

Benham drops a wear on the T8 line at 120 to clear. Snouffer pulls up to T8 on the line at 100. Harrington tucks in behind at 140.

Bauska has initiative at 100 out of the three-wide. He elects to go outer rail for a wear(?!). Harley, also at 100, is happy to take the open line, sponging off a tire in the process. Weisen runs last at 60 and clears T6 on the inner rail.

Hudson elects to go outer rail at 80 for free (?!). Scarpino wanted to be where the M&M's car is but has to settle in on the racing line for free.

Hoyt finishes out T5 at 120 and picks up the T6 line. Bernhardt punishes his fat tires for 2 wear on the T5 line at 140. I think he's hit the 'Go' button!
