Thursday, Thursday, Thursday at the new Fire Circle track!
Hot Axles and Alloys racing in the Deadzone! Will new meat win the vaunted Deadzone Champion trophy, or will Terry "The Terror" Carr and his hated 'Dutch Oven' Jeep maintain his reign?
The StoryIf you followed last week's action of the group's six-race challenge, Ken was supposed to host a F1 race this week. Unavoidable circumstances saw the location and game changed to my casa and finely tuned F1 cars replaced by post-apocalyptic beaters. The only similarity was they were ready to race!
Participants: Jon Mark, Ken, Terry, Bill, Cordry and me.
I was almost at "Fire Circle Loop", the namesake of the track, when things fell to pieces for the race. First, Cordry decided to gun it and ram me, sending my buggy into an out-of-control spin. I ended up pointed the wrong way, at a standstill and offering a fine firing profile for Ken as he rounded the corner. Never one to miss an opportunity to waylay me, he hammered my vehicle with weapon fire.
Then came Bill, with his long-range rifle slung across his hood. He rounded the corner and took aim at Jon Mark. His shot was true, as he not only hit Jon Mark's car (the Fishbat), but killed the driver as well!
|Where it ended.|
On the backside of the race, near the starting line, Jon Mark, Cordry and I were tangled up in gridlock. My car, the Fez, had skidded into a barrier and wound up taking last place.
End result? Terry was in first, with Ken and a late-arriving Bill in second and third, respectively.
Next racing stop? F1 in Japan. See y'all next time!
