Crusher got a bit crushed. :(

Tough work ahead for the drivers without those center lights.

Emilio and sonny have the 949 cars running 1 and 2. Hope crusher can make it through the night with minimal lights.

According to Race Monitor, Crusher is leading E2 by 6 laps after nearly 12 hours. Sonny was driving Enzo (949's second car) and piloted them to P2. I'm not sure when Sonny finished, but they just yielded P2 to a team from Atlanta perhaps during a driver change. Nick is now driving Enzo. I'm following this through Twitter and the Race Monitor App on the iphone so it's hard to see exactly what is happening. Race Monitor has the following for E2 as of the time stamp on this post:
Crusher 11th overall 315 laps in Fast Lap 2:03.32
Car#102 Team Atlanta MS 15th overall 310 laps in Fast lap 2:03.69
Enzo 16th overall 310 laps in Fast lap 2:04.05
Team Miata Cage 18th overall 306 laps in fast lap 2:07.50

Edit: While I was typing this, Enzo pulled back into P2!

From Emilio: Emilio: 3am.mechanical issues on Crusher. Fixd and both cars runng fast again.On deck. I go into enzo in 10 minutes for double stint.
Twitter for Android 12/4/11 3:08 AM

Wyatt reports Emilio is in crusher and sonny is in Enzo. Enzo is leading E2 by a lap over the Atlanta guys and crusher is in 3rd 6 laps back. The sun comes up on the west coast in less than 2 hours. Let's see how many tricks the boss has in the bag!

The app confirms Enzo leading E2 by 2 laps. The just turned their fast lap of 2:03.62 in lap 531 a few minutes ago. The app lists car #102 from Atlanta Motorsports in E2 also but another list I saw had them in a different class.

Crusher looks like it is still turning laps but is now 10 laps down.

I don't know if William is piloting Crusher right now, but whoever is is driving angry. He just turned Crusher's fastest lap a few minutes ago at 2:03.13 and now has Crusher in P2 behind Enzo - and made up ~2 laps in the last hour. The sun is up on the left coast and it should be in the high 50s by the end of the race. I wonder what happens if the two cars are on the same lap in the 25th hour?

The endurance radio feed sounds like audio effects for an 80s sci-fi movie. Are there normally commentators talking about the race?

The sun is up and everyone at the front of E2 has posted their fast laps in the last hour. Enzo is P1/E2 and 10th overall with 560 laps. Crusher is P2 and 16th overall ~8 laps back but Team Atlanta is on the same lap in P3. They seem to have one really fast shoe in the driver rotation. When he's in the seat they seem to make up ground and their best lap is around .8 seconds faster than either 949 car.
