You WILL need snow tires if the forecast for this weekend is accurate!

Drivers, here are the builds for Sunday’s race. Chris will be unable to attend, and so we will have only 7 cars on the grid.

Please submit your pole bids to WILL, not to me, by Friday @ 7 PM ET (US).

Here's the starting grid. Note we got another 1/2" of snow last night, so the track may be slippery.

Turn 10, the first of many cruel die rolls - Chris L damages his brakes heading into Corvette corner.

And it's catchy - next turn, and Don damages his brakes.

Two turns later (13) Don stands on the brakes again - and they fail completely.

On Lap2, turn 19, Chris tries a Chance roll in Cadillac corner - and spins out. Boxcars before and now an 11. He and Don have certainly offended the Dice Gods.

Turn 26, near the end of Lap 2. Rob has put some distance between him and Phil. Chris B has been moving up the ranks, having saved a lot of wear, and is now turning up the wick. Meantime, Jack has apparently offended the Dice Gods as well, as he spins in Continental corner, forcing Dave outside.

Lap 3 sees Rob holding off Chris B until Turn 39, when they are side-by-side and in a drag race with dice. Both plot 180, and both make it, giving us our 1-2 finishers on Turn 40.

The rest of the field would finish in their order as of Turn 40.
