My interpretation of the east and west courses.  East course is rev 1 (revised it after a 2nd look and listening to Neal's walk) ... with more hints on it.

So Ryan and Wayne will be running in the 1st heat on the East course tomorrow (Tuesday) morning ... Runs begin at 9 am central time.

Everyone else is running on Thurs/Fri - Cam/Stephen (AS), Ambrose/Jay (SS) and Alan Rae (DM)

There are other Canadians down there from Vancouver, Toronto, Winnipeg, Quebec etc.

I noticed Jay, Ambrose, Cam, Stephen, etc. etc. are signed up for the Test 'n Tune course at various times on Tuesday and Wednesday ...

The concrete is quite different over there (similar grip to Fort Macleod ... maybe slightly more due to rubber and more heat generally).  So, it is good to get some test time in to get a "feel" of the grip and how much you can push the car.

They are all getting ready .... 1st car (kart - JB) in less than 10 min. ... 8 am our time/9 am central time.

Wayne is the 25th vehicle (incl. karts) out ... so coming up quickly at 20 sec. apart (or less):

Radio is down on east course ... they are working on it.

Something happened .... Wayne has an 80 sec. time (fast time is 58) ... there were others with 84, 85 sec. times ... think everyone got red-flagged or something .... somebody must have mowed down a wall of cones or something ... so must be re-runs coming up.  Some of the 80+ sec. times have disappeared so they are working on them ... re-runs I think.

Yep, Wayne's 80 sec. time is gone ... obviously a re-run coming ... (not yet though).  They are running really slow on the east course ... I suppose it could have been a broken car/spilled fluids etc. causing a delay.  Hopefully the radio comes back soon on the east - SoloMatters mentioned they were working on it (listening to the STS action on the west course ... some friends there).

there we go!  Wayne with a 58.1 ... into 5th place with most of the field with runs already so a good first run it looks like!  Good stuff, good way to start.   2nd drivers to come ... the fast guys.
