This series of turns is a complete mess...

T28.png
T28: Mike spins on a chance roll. With no line available, Jim spin on a chance roll. Don fails his brake test and spins w/ no wear. Chris uses his last two wear and pulls off the forced pass on Jim's spun car. A new race leader! Rob plays it safe and pulls up as the cars behind get stacked up.


T29.png
T29: Jim and Mike block the racing lines. Rob burns his last wear. Jason squeezes through and threatens Chris. Doug pulls off the forced pass on a blocking Mike but takes damage and spins. Tim and Kevin find open spots while James enjoys the view.


T30.png
T30: With the wear advantage, no one can stop Jason. Don performs a pass on the blocking Doug.

As quirky as this track was, I liked it. There are some interesting choices to make and everyone seemed to be in contention in the last lap.

Thanks to both Chris and Jason for assisting. It was a fun race and I enjoyed the company.
