First place!

It looks like the UM solar car "MomentUM" more than made up a 29-minute deficit, and is now sitting pretty in Medicine Hat, Alberta with a 12-minute lead over their nearest rivals, Minnesota. The final leg of the race, Medicine Hat to Calgary, will be Wednesday, and according to one commenter the car should be able to make it all the way on batteries. The UM car apparently is excelling against fairly strong Canadian headwinds. Photos from the start of the race in Austin, TX are here.
