Week 9 Results

(click on map to enlarge)

WOW! Some teams took advantage of the no-mile limit this week and sped across the country. Greased Lightning (6305) surpassed She-Power (6120) for the lead! Interestingly, they made it to Prairie du Chien, WI. This is Monica's hometown and she's the captain of the team. What a great coincidence! She-Power is still in Iowa just passing through Des Moines, trying to catch up with the new leader. Team Alpha (5410) barely retained their 3rd place spot as The Atalantas (5410) kicked it in high gear and almost surpassed them. Hopefully Team Alpha and Team Atalantas keep up the fight as we go into this last week of the challenge. Losing a little steam this week, The Racing Rhetoricians (4560) are just outside of Las Vegas; hopefully they don't get slowed down by the ring of the slot machines! Finally, Git 'er Done (3075) is chugging along nicely. They've made it into Texas and will hopefully soar over to Arizona this coming week.

Last week, gang! Next week we'll crown some team the winner!! It's only 1400-ish miles away for Greased Lightning. Given they had almost 900 miles this week, it's not unreasonable to think they could make it all the way back to RI!
