I have this sighting from O'hare from yesterday morning. I think they probably came from Incheon because they were there at the right time for them to have just landed from the flight from Incheon. Hope this is helpful! This is only my second post :funny: I also have a 30 sec video but its too long to upload.  :(

Thanks TARmap! Do you know when the photo was taken?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Welcome TARmap  :waves:  Might be able to get the timestamp info found in the EXIF data of the ORIGINAL (large) file as downloaded from the camera.  Or you might try and right-click and click on file Properties to get additional info on ORIGINAL pic file.  Just a thought.

more spec
The amazing Coke Zero 400 stock car race was held at Chicagoland Speedway today.
pretty sure Daytona was the Coke Zero 400, I watched it :) I can't find any events on July 2 at Chicagoland 
Maybe all the Chicago sightings were a fake ending, and Chicagoland Speedway was the real finale? Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**

Interesting...could explain why we didn't see the racers in downtown Chicago till later in the day.  Raceway could have been the first destination after arriving on a early flight (from Seoul?) maybe.  Food for thought.

BTW, Olive Park was the finish line, as we have already speculated.

Well you know finales, they like to start off with something exciting that will look good for the previews. And a raceway would certainly fit the bill.

Making hot dogs, eh not so much :P

Exactly... but we need those nit-picky little tasks that frustrate the racers just before the dash to the finish line.... (kinda like assembling IKEA furniture)  :funny:  ...frustrates the hell out of me..  :grins:

I can also confirm that the Speedway was the first task of the day. *VROOOM*

Racers were heard asking for these locations;


City Hall
Wabash Bridge
Buckingham Fountain

What is not known is whether someone had told them a way to go using Bridge so they were asking for a landmark,  or is that a location, and if there was a clue box or anything else at fountain. But again, those locations were asked for SPECIFICALLY.

Water Tower may be a team going to the wrong location. :(

Then we have hotdog task to fit in here I think..

Then Wrigley for memory.

Milton Olive Park for Finish.

Anything missed?? ???

Neobie...may we have a MAP??   :hearts:

Around 11 o'clock. It's my dad's photo :funny:

Sounds about right IF they arrived from Korea aboard non-stop Korean Airlines flight KE37 which lands at approx. 9:30AM... given time for deplaning, customs, immigration... I'd say this fits the "around 11 o'clock" sighting estimate.  curious.....  :umn:

Edited to add: OK, according to Peach, looks like they were a little late in arriving.. even better  :snicker:

I don't know that they WENT there. I do know that racers asked how to GET there. :duno:

Just thinking out loud here.... as to why teams were not spotted going into/out of Korea.

Flying from Vietnam to Seoul not a problem, probably a lot of locals do not know about the show.  Perhaps the Korea leg was a night leg or not entirely in Seoul.  That would explain a lack of sightings.  Now comes the hard part, why no one has posted ANY pix of them going to Chicago (excluding our one sighting at O'hare), regardless of the origin point.  Surely there were some Americans on the flight.  A mystery for sure. Time will tell, as more posts could be coming after the Holiday.

Based on the sightings, we can now know that the teams entered the F3 are Logan and London, Tara and Joey and Scott and Brooke.
Fantastic!  I was all set to skip TAR29 when I found out that the one women's team got tossed second.  But I'll give it a watch now that it looks like the one men's team also got the boot at one point.

Not so happy it seemed to happen so late in the game, though.

So, we know who the final 3 teams are, right?  Problem is that they all look the same.

At least Team 4 and 8 do. I keep getting confused when I see them, trying to figure out which team is which. Team 3 looks different.

Unfortunately for me, they all look so similar to the point that I didn't care at one point who the F3 teams were. :funny:
Personal speculation, I think the teams I'll be rooting for, a.k.a. favorite teams, won't make it to the final leg, again.

In the same way, I'm surprised we got no pics from them at GRU leaving for Africa, the lack of sightings there is troubling, considering how many enthused fans we had around for the Sao Paulo leg the day before. It bothers me how much trouble we're still having to really locking down what was leg 3, whether that was Tanzania 1 or another African country altogether.

It is clear from the Memory Task at Wrigley that Dar is our missing Tanzania leg.
