Blanchett fires down the Wellington Straight at 160. Koerber tucks in at 140.

McConchie gives the engine at nudge to 160 with 2s (modified 5). Marshall, at 140, anchors the conga line.

Wow, within three turns MacDonald blows his engine on two really bad dice rolls. Sometimes this game sucks...

Turn 30 Summary

Harley drops the hammer and pushes the engine to 180 (natural 8). Schultz lays up behind him at 160.

MacDonald takes his last 2s on an engine check to go 160 (modified 10). Arghhhhh! He rolls boxcars and has to pull the racer over. To add insult to injury, he would've received a double bonus from Russ.

Moratto cruises down the Hanger Straight at 180. Bernhardt finishes out Becketts for free at 120.

Koerber knocks down a wear on the Becketts line at 140.

Kay gets the initiative at 180 and slams into Becketts for two wear. When he hits the 120's, he uses his last 2s on the chance roll (modified 4). He's got wear... can he catch some cars? Marshall gets hung on the Becketts line at 140.

McConchie burns a wear at 160 when he dives into Becketts, off-line. Blanchett cruises through Maggots at 160.

Moore takes an RM plot of 140 on the red line for free. Hoyt clears Copse at 180 for two tires on the green line.
