Oh.. is that possible without lifting the truck up and over the dump-tab at the end of the track?  If so, I didn't even realize this (nor did anyone I asked).  If scoring both 50+60 is possible simply by detecting that final black line and stopping at that point.. that REALLY needs to be spelled out as a goal.  Trying to decipher intent through cold hard rules is very difficult. Our season is over and we're still just now (as a group) deciphering intent of the mission goals.

Can someone in the know let us know.. was the intent of the truck mission to push it to a specific point.. so that the load was not dumped, but still east of the guide rail? If so.. no one I spoke to (including the refs) seemed to perceive or communicate this desired end state.

Here's the ONLY example I have seen of this being done:

As long as the yellow bin is both completely east of the truck guide and still completely supported by the truck, you get 110. It's a fine line, but the cab of the truck can be on the truck guide while the bed of the truck with the yellow bin is completely east of the guide. That should get the 60+50.
