Since Sunday's race is going on Down Under, it's going down in a little more than 2 hours.

VG rosters lock at 8 eastern.

Saturday night's all right for racing. Get a little action in.

2+ days to perseverate! That provides an exquisite opportunity to maximize the Angst to Results ratio.

It went poorly for me GrainBrain but magnificently for semroc .
