Butch and Bill are determined to finally close the gap on the lower forty-eighters. Carl continues to fight Super Jeep's mechanical fatigue, hoping she has enough left in her to keep them out front. Brent and Scott go it alone, preferring to rely on their "Leigh tough" attitude over the others' assistance.

And Jason is hell-bent on proving he should have won, even if doing so takes other teams out of the running.
