The five red lights come on, one at a time, then - they go out and the race is on!

Jim gets the jump, pushing his start to 120 (1sk = 7 OK) and grabs the line and P1.

Stephen grabs the start of the line behind him at 100.

Chris L also does 100 and pulls behind Stephen.

Jeff pushes his start 80 80 (2sk = 7 OK) and stays inside.

Mario also pushes to 80 (2sk = 7 OK) and pulls behind Jeff.

Don pushes to 120 (2sk = 7 OK - sensing a pattern here!) and pulls into P4.

Bruce does 60 to the inside and takes P7.

Tim pushes to 40 (1 sk = 5 OK, and finally the die roller breaks out of a rut).

John pushes to 80 (2sk = 7 OK - ah, back to what we know…) and moves into P8 outside of Bruce.

Doug does 20 and heads to the middle lane.

Chris B does 100 and pulls outside of John for P10.
