Too damn early for me. I'll join up when I'm awake.
I hope they all get some rest
This working for a living stuff sucks.
I have to check in when I get home and see what happened during the day.
Could be worse I spose.
Good to see the team made it past the first dune.
The way I see it if they all 3 finish the race it will be a victory.

Maybe that could be the definition of " success" as all three Buggies are fairly slow
Robby Gordon has begun stage 2
Chat today?? And Whoa.. RG just took 1st for WP1..By 10 minutes?? Wait, what?
wait, what? rg first at wp1 by 10 minutes? lol
Here is what I think.
Robby has to stop for fuel in this stage, so I am guessing they factor in the 15 Minutes from the get go, so once he stops that large time lead will go away
That would make sense. It stinks not having more detailed course information. I can't imagine that he's beat everyone else by 1/3rd of the time. Watching the ticker, it did look like he was on a similar pace as the rest of the field.
