No need to talk about 1st place last night, when 1st laps the entire field and comes back around for to do it again you just lose the will to live. Although Vladimir should have got some so good GoPro video of the rest of us losers fighting amongst ourselves.
The forward direction and reverse direction switch during the race didn’t seem to effect anyone; we all had it figured out. PayPal Thunder had ended up in 2nd with 20 min to go but had the 3rd place team of Papal Thunder getting closer and closer. Within 3min Nathan had closed up to Rick’s bumper and was letting him know he was there. The bump-pass was inevitable. Vladimir had just done it to Rick earlier on his way to world domination so we were all expecting it.
To Nathans credit, he could have gone to the dark side and forced he way past but chose the good and drove a clean race and tried several times to get around the Birthday Boy but just couldn’t. And it’s usually not too good to bump-pass the owner….except for Putin!
Without dropping a race, here’s the standings:
