Coming home as the runner-up is David Kucharski (@Davekucharski) who won a tiebreaker with lpjazz by virtue of a tie breaker with a closer car count guess. With a total of 160 cars across the three divisions, Kucharski’s guess of 169 was slightly closer than lpjazz’s prediction of 172. Both contestants finished with a total of 477 points.
