How'd the test and tune - qualification go today? didn't know if the live feeds came about - sure there is plenty other high priority things than feeding us video. As far as live coverage goes - only place I found was Endurance Radio Live

Bring the pain tomorrow!

Go! Race! Win!

Side note... does anyone in your crew have any free time to swing by Sacramento to help me buy a Fiat 128? (totally serious...)

Holy crap the way that TTRS is moving through the field. Is anyone else running in the same class as that team?

That RSX from Fanstasy Junction put down a fast lap, 2:00.4xx, but looks like Crusher has a lap on him right now anyways .

I suppose laptimes aren't nearly as important in enduros.

That Radical is flying around the track. As of 6:52 into the race, Crusher took the class lead from CJ Wilson Racing!

Not sure, but I heard transmission issues. Their facebook says they are done.

What happened to 949? was it a pit? I have a live feed of pit, and never saw them go by while cj passed them 4 times... but I could have easily missed it.

"Differential change took 27 minutes. Nemo now 15 laps down. Yes, it was an MSM diff"

7:33
Nemo now has a new engine and transmission to go with that differential.

7:49
Crusher p1, kitty p3, super p4. Memo p last but running with the spare motor...

Im assuming thats local time as opposed to race timing? that would explain the issues with nemo.

Just got up from 3hr nap. Sitting in RV alone looking at race monitor. Nemo is out of the race, blew its second engine. Kitty was the car to beat but a brake problem put it too far back to catch up. Super lost time with a radio problem and off pace stint but getting longer runs from its Toyo RR tires than the front runners on Hoosiers. Hoping we can cycle our fastest drivers through it and claw our way back.

I drove about 8 of the first 9-1/2 hours then slept (sorta). Time for some coffee andcseat time. Ill try to check in around 3am when I get out.

Oh yeah, Andrew Kidd and Keith Tanner are machines.

True dat! Watching the rear end swap on Nemo was impressive!

The 949 team is dialed in! Good luck tonight guys!

Wow - 494 laps in, under yellow, Crusher is leading by a lap over CJ Wilson... this is gonna be down to the wire.

Now under green, watching the timing, seems Crusher is gaining and about to put a full lap on CJ - trailing by about 12 sec.
