Builds are in.

With the only 100 start speed, Harley should jump out to his preferred race leader position. It may be a bit crowded in the back with seven 20's off the start. Engine performance was a popular place to put build points with four 180's on the top and ten 60's (one 80) on the accelerator. Brakes are almost as equally popular with eight 60's and one 80.

Kubala and Bernhardt trot out identical setups on their Fords. Harrington and Hoyt go with big tires on their matched cars. Lastly, the rookies come in with the same configuration on their Chevys. All other cars are unique.

Start bid deadline: Wednesday, October 7th @ 7 a.m. EDT (11 a.m. UTC)

Turn 1 Summary

Caldwell pushed to 80 out of row 2 with 1s (modified 6). He sets up the green line in the middle. Walling pushes 80 with 2s (modified 6) and eschews the green line to cut inside.

Out of the third row, Costa pushes 80 with 1s (modified 4) and stays behind the orange machine. Dygert is satisfied with hits start speed of 20.
