Minnesota ended the first day of racing with 169 laps on the official count. All four drivers were able to get some time in the car, and all three of our tire changes went quickly and relatively smoothly. We were well in the lead, with an estimated 40 laps on our nearest competitors, Waterloo and Northwestern. However, both of them were running near or at our pace for much of the day; a single incident could easily place either or both of them ahead of us.
It's not over yet folks, we've got two more days to go!
It's time for us to pack up for the night, as we've got to wake up early and charge in the morning.
Remember to check out our twitter during the race day for more frequent updates!
