Near Photo Finish

Ironically, race leader Missouri-Rolla pulled into pit about 45 minutes before the end of the race with what appeared to be a supspension/brake issue. Although they attempted to repair the problem, they were unable to restore Solar Miner IV to running condition before the end of the race. Borealis II, meanwhile, freshly repaired continued to run hot laps rapidly closing the gap with Rolla, unfortunately the time ran out and BII crossed the finish line 10 laps behind Rolla.
