Yeah, I wish I could find an official entrants list. I was going off of the qualifying list and there was only the 6 cars I listed last night in E2.

Just over 3 hours left.

Enzo was supposed to be the second car too - Crusher got all the a-list attention. Wytt's tweet from around 30 minutes ago said Oscar Jackson is running Crusher and Emilio is in Enzo. The $4.99 I spent on the Race Monitor App is the best 5 bucks I've spent in a long time.

Oh, and for the record... Emilio and Enzo passed the E0 leader and are now two laps up. 949s E2 cars are now ahead of everything except the ES cars. How's that for some fun ****!

NASA needs to have a race like this at TWS, or even better, at COTA, assuming that ever happens

nasa has had 4-8hr. enduro's every year at TWS. not sure if it happened this year though. i know they said it wouldn't happen if there wasn't enough entries. that ****'s expensive too.

About 75 minutes to go and Enzo has a comfortable 6.5 lap lead. There is an epic battle going on between Crusher and the Atlanta team for P2. They are on the same lap and have changed positions at least twice in the last half hour. The last tweet said Dean was driving Enzo but I'm not sure who is in Crusher. Absolutely epic battle!

Yeah I know. I think a 24 hour would be cool, but if NASA cannot draw a large enough grid for an 8 hour, then filling a 24 hour would be harder unless it had a national draw. COTA maybe, TWS maybe not.

I did a few 8 hour races on bikes and that is indeed a long race. It's harder to do with less than 5 riders (max allowed in CMRA). But it is not as hard to do vehicle wise since bikes are so insanely durable. Just feed it tires and fuel, and keep an eye on the oil level.

Chumpcar will be doing a 24 Hour race at TWS. I know it's not quite the same, but still a hoot.

Congrats out to all the guys on 949 Racing and Supermiata for the win!
