Default Marathon race

I just finished watching the marathon race. Good racing! Other than one nasty crash and a roll, it looked like there was some really good hard racing going on. I think that I have to give some of the credit to APBA for their programming. It's clear that this was one of the better episodes that I've seen. They gave coverage to alot of the classes-even some of the slower ones. They also took a moment to explain the different classes. A basic but missing element from their other shows. I also liked them putting the finish orders up to answer the question of who finished where. Thumbs up! Defintely edge of the seat racing!

I saw parts of it as I was coming in & out of the house. And I did get to see the crash and rollover (good timing going through the house) Can't wait to watch it later when I have more time. I taped it. Those Typhoon boys looked like they made up some ground after getting a bad start. I did see the part were the VR1 boat was picking up the Flag so I guess they didn't make up enough to win.

I also thought it was the best episode I've seen. It was amazing what Typhoon did by finishing second when they didn't even have the motor started at the beginning. They just ran out of laps or they would have won.
