It was backwards qualifying and racing again last night, which is proving to be a great layout for the Tuesday Night crew. Papal Thunder was back on pole, followed closely by Team d and, um, Vladimir Putin. VJ and Sushanth rounded out the top 5.
The race had a clean start with Team d quickly passing Papal Thunder for the lead and creating a gap. While the lead lasted for the first half of the race, they had done only one stop and were out of sequence, and an unfortunate mistake caused a yellow flag and a full lap lost. At this point, …?… was done with all three stops and was looking strong. Sure enough, he assumed the lead on lap 81. However, things were just heating up, as ABC was on a charge and would catch up. Lap after lap he tried to find a way past, and on the last lap actually pulled even with …?… but was fought off fairly. In the end, …?… held on for the Iron Man win, followed by ABC just .173 seconds behind. Finishing off the top 5 were VJ, Papal Thunder, and Sushanth.
