ST1.png
T1: Stephen & Brent jump out front. Four total pushes on the start, all successful.


ST2.png
T2: The craziness starts early. Stephen uses one red chip for the inside chance and another red chip for the forced pass on a blocking Brent. The double 3's on the dice cause 2 wear of damage to Brent's car.


ST3.png
T3: Russ damages the brakes on a late attempt, even with 2 skill on the roll (see those boxcars?).
