9 drivers push start speed, 8 successfully. Details in the chart. I won't repeat them here.

Turn start grid:
Beckman shoots off the starting line at 80 holding the inside
Ales matches that move to keep even
Swaine also is able to got to 80 choosing to tuck in behind Ales
Kennington does not tax his engine keeping at 60

Kubala catches the black machine at 80
Baker moves inside at 40
Kennard grabs his wing also at 40
Welage is happy to start at 20, not chancing the dice

Ingraham pushes to 80 pulling even with Baker
Burnett at pushes to 40 and hugs the inside
Puddifoot, the last to not try dice, comes out at 20
Brandt misses the shift right at the start

Note: I will not be back in time on Wednesday as previously thought. So the next deadline will be Thursday.
