Very Long Day of Racing Over, BMW 528e Leads

When we started the race in hot, muggy Connecticut, 75 or so cars set out onto the track. When the race session ended at 10:00, only 35 cars were still running... and a BMW E28 had the lead!

The lead switched back and forth between the Near Orbital Space Monkeys 528e and the Team Pro-Crass-Duh-Nation Alfa Romeo Milano all day long, but then the Milano fried a wheel bearing and the BMW ended up with a healthy 7-lap lead. Still, laps are short at this track— say, around 30 seconds for the quickest cars— and a lot can happen on Sunday. I'm too tired to go into much detail here— 95 degree temperature and 100% humidity have a way of making the LeMons Penalty Box an exhausting job— so you'll have to check in tomorrow to get more LeMons action.
