Completely stuffed my qualifying lap, was set for a fast time but completely over drove 3 and slid up almost into the wall.
So had to take my time early in race.
Tires were in good shape and i was catching the leaders on the long green flag run.
Took 2 during the green flag stop and grabbed the lead and was able to maintain the gap to the guys that took 4.

Just before the yellows came out i was starting to struggle on exits and Kevin was probably going to get by me.

Took 4 during the cautions each time, but now being up front i was over driving it and working the tires way too hard.
Really struggled on exits late in the run and if there was a few more laps i think i was in trouble.

Im still not really seeing any different lines come good late in races, both in official series and in leagues.
Maybe try 100% usage and see if that makes a difference.

I agree with Jason.  I cant tell any difference with track changes and having to use different lines for better grip.  I ran the same line the entire race, even took two tires on one stop and still couldnt tell any difference after everyones tires equaled out.

I got a little too assertive with #58 Ralph at the end causing an incident between us. I took 2 tires on the first pit and gained 5 positions but was unable to stay consistent. I agree with trying the 100% on dynamic. I'm also going to raise the fuel to 50% to allow for longer green flag runs. Excellent racing.....
