I'll give you a full write-up next week. In the meantime, here's the short story:

Two drivers weren't able to make the race (Stephen & Joe), through no fault of their own, so we started with seven. By the end of the race, it was whittled down to three cars finishing.

Renaud - Retired after a spin, a damaged engine, and few resources left.
Doug - Crashed trying to hold off the hard charging Rando. Also had damaged brakes.
Russ - Crashed after coming in too hot on Corner 2 with no wear. Also had damaged engine.
Kevin - Out on failed brakes.

First place: Rando (no damage!)
Second place: Mike (damaged engine)
Third place: Brent (damaged engine & brakes)

The dice were not friendly tonight.

T0: A reconfigured grid without Joe & Stephen.


T1.png
T1: Russ uses the big chip on the start but to no avail with boxcars. We should have taken this as a sign.


T2.png
T2: The wear comes off as five cars clear the first corner.

T18.png
T18: Russ & Doug are clear for Manitoba Dr.


T19.png
T19: Doug takes the outright lead as Russ fails an engine test.


T20.png
T20: Doug will have clean air for a while as he clears the Nova Scotia complex in one turn. Unfortunately, he failed on the over-brake and will have to nurse the brakes. Not to be outdone, Kevin joins the broken car club with his own failed brake test.

T21: Rando gets bold and hits a chance roll to clear Nova Scotia. He and Russ bottle up the exit.


T22.png
T22: More busted brakes as Brent goes to the dice cup.


T23.png
T23: Only Doug & Rando are onto the long straight. Can Doug hold off the Doom Buggy (which, by the way, has been running upside down for a few turns...lol)?

Wear count at the start of Lap 3

Russ 2
Mike 6
Kevin 7
Brent 7
Rando 7
Renaud 4
Doug 3

T24.png
T24: Renaud spins in the first corner! Brent now has a nice set of -20 markers after damaging his engine.


T25.png
T25: The upside-down Rando starts to put pressure on the leader.


T26.png
T26: Doug knows he can't hold off Rando without some chance rolls. The first attempt goes awry and he is out of the race. In the rear, Renaud fails an engine test, looks at his hopeless situation, and opts for a good night's sleep.

T29.png
T29: Rando uses a wear but has plenty left.
