YQ 300 2017 – Day 2

These are the 10PM CST standings on the YQ 300 based on the Live Tracker. The two races are obviously overlapping. Michelle Phillips’s tracking unit isn’t working well and drops out for long periods.

Olaf Thurau (61) scratched at Braeburn citing the good of his team, i.e. the puppies weren’t happy.

These are the official standings. That means they are official, not that they are correct. Things jump around a lot as people decide to update the standings. This problem is especially bad in the back of the pack, as no one bothers to update those standings when the lead is changing.
