    No wrong turns, that doesn't happen.
    See my post above... 200x took the second Sporty shortcut. That was a long cut.
    So 200x is "leading" and it's possible that the 2nd Sporty bike also gets ahead of 1x because of the sporty cut... give it 30 minutes to see.

    The first sporty is in some fast terrain it looks like unless it’s the “tracker” deal.

    Not a problem, if nothing else it wakes up the spectators and he's clearing the road for 1x. Being the first bike on the course is more than a little gnarly.

    Trackers are great when they work, frustrating as fuck when they don't, but don't rely on them for any sort of accuracy. These days speeding or missing a VCP will yield race losing penalties that aren't known until after the finish.

    Cheering for my buddies LR & little Matt who are taking Luke McMillions #83 Trophy Truck into Valley De Trinidad.

    522x back in the lead in the class, sounds like they might be a little worse for wear.

    522x looks to be sitting in a good place 80 miles out with half a dozen TTs already past.
    Ironman 725x is on the screen near mile 700. Keep it up man!
