Flats, Point-Per-Lap 7/22

Been off from racing for a bit, so back at it with a fun points-per-lap race. Quick reminder, this format is that every lap the leaders get points; most points at the end wins – not necessarily first guy to cross on the last lap. So it tends to be sprint after sprint, and fairly tough!
Well, it was as eventful as ever. Few teams were there in force, so lots of quick attacks and sprints at the end, followed by sprints after the line to try and break away. The most excitement for me was about lap 11, when a small attack formed. I bridged up to it, thinking I was towing the pack, then realized that five of us were alone. We made it to the drag strip, then 2 people peeled off. End of the strip, a third peeled off, shouting that the two of us had it. We went as hard as we could, and I was leading as we rounded the turn for the finish, but the pack reeled us in a hundred yards from the finish. Alas! I think if the 3 had stayed with us another rotation or two, we would have had it easily, but it was just not happening for the two of us for half a mile.
Finished the race uneventfully; I was fairly spent after that, so didn’t push for much afterwards.
