Logic Problem Solution:
A Few Fast Figure Eights

By clue 6, the #24 Blue Bullet finished 3rd or 4th in the Figure Eight Event. If the #24 Blue Bullet had placed 3rd, then Kelly would have won the race and Mrs. Anser would have been 2nd. In clue 4, then, Cindy would have driven the 2nd-place go-kart and Cindy would be Mrs. Anser, which she isn't (1). Therefore, the #24 Blue Bullet was 4th in the event. Then the #1 Crimson Comet was 3rd (4), and Mrs. Getty and Cindy drove the 2nd- and 1st-place go-karts respectively. Kelly and Mrs. Anser placed 2nd and 3rd (6). Mrs. Undretti is neither Heidi nor Wendy (5) and thus didn't finish 4th; she is Cindy. By elimination, Mrs. Pordon placed 4th. Mrs. Undretti didn't drive the #77 Red Rocket (3), so Mrs. Getty did; and Mrs. Undretti raced the #10 White Whippet to victory. Finally, by clue 2, Heidi is Mrs. Anser and Wendy Mrs. Pordon. The final order of finish in the Figure Eight Event was

• 1st - Cindy Undretti in the #10 White Whippet
• 2nd - Kelly Getty in the #77 Red Rocket
• 3rd - Heidi Anser in the #1 Crimson Comet
• 4th - Wendy Pordon in the #24 Blue Bullet
