Times mean nothing but ...

Even from race to race, times mean nothing. Some teams want to put a target on their back by finishing first, while others just want to get past the semi finals with as little effort as possible. To be clear, the best crews made the finals in each event. At this juncture the seedings still hold for the top four teams. Texas and Washington are still the favorites but there are three other teams in play for the national championship. To be clear winning the 1st eight puts that team in the driver's seat with respect to the overall championship but again finishing ahead of your competition in the each of the three races puts you in good position to win it all too if one of the favorites has a bad race in any of the three.
