    A few drivers have not responded yet for tonight. There are still a few spots open. Deadline for priority seats closes at noon Eastern Time today. After that it is on a first-come-first serve basis regardless of seeding position.

    @MajorBlixem - are you helping out tonight?

    Well, power is out and still storming. Estimated fix time isn’t until almost midnight. Don’t think that I’ll be making the Invitational. :guilty:

    Great job racing everyone. Looked like a lot of fun races, sorry that I missed. Hopefully the power lines were fixed well this time. Just got power back about an hour ago. Watched the stream.

    Congratulations to @racingchamp30 who destroyed the rest of the field with three awesome wins and a perfect score of 100. That guy is unstoppable once he gets into a groove.

    The data is below. The more I look at it the more interesting things pop up. Here are some:

    1. Race 1 finished within 0.2 seconds from the target time

    2. I was wondering how the updated tire model is going to affect the fastest lap times and a very interesting result came out:
    - In race 1 almost everyone had a faster lap by quite a margin compared to their best lap in season.
    - In races 2 and 3 it was the opposite. Almost everyone was slower by quite a margin.
    > Race 1 was on SS tires and Races 2/3 was on RH tires. mmmm......​

    3. The fasted lap in Race 1 was by a D3 driver - Drop the sandbags during the season @THRASH :mischievous:

    4. Race 1 was one of our closest overall finishes yet, with 7 cars in the short main straight chasing champ over the line.

    Thanks to @Raw10_2u who helped with the texting, @MajorBlixem who did the spectator broadcast and @SAMHAIN85 who jumped in and typed the gaps when he came in for the last race. All these things make it a little easier come race night.

    I had a rough few days doing landscaping and we went to town to buy a tree and groceries this afternoon. When we entered the grocery store I asked my wife what time it is.... 6:35 pm mountain time - 25 minutes before I have to open the room and I have not set anything up yet. We just ran through the store and picked up what was urgent and raced home.... got the room open a minute or two late..... and then I accidentally kicked @THRASH instead of one of the intruders. Then we had to open a new room.

    But after all is said in done, it was a good night, I think.

    Yea last night was fun. Im guessing they are always going to mess with the tire physics just to keep us interested. I didnt really feel a difference but the data says otherwise. I dont argue facts.

    That combo is one of my favorites I’ve ever done. And also I wrecked lap 3 and fell behind. By the time I got spun back around I got behind @Mully465 and studied his braking points and then a couple laps later I cranked out that bullet lap. Great race.
