The truck prep is wrapping up and we head shortly to the designated scrutineering time - 1:30 pm Perth time - 10:30 pm PST - back home. The guys were able to rig up the turn signals required by the governing bodies' race regs, but it made for a late night. The driver's meeting is tonight and will clarify outstanding questions about rules, regs and schedule. We will post those specifics and the information about the Marathon Legs.
