  1. amount earned by 1st --- x
    amount earned by 2nd --- 18500-x

    if first had earned 500 less, they would be the same

    x - 500 = 18500 - x
    2x = 19000
    x = 9500

    one earned 9500 , the other 9000

    time for car 3 --- x
    time for car 1 --- x+5
    time for car 5 --- x +8
    time for car 4 ---- x+1
    time for car 2 ---- x+2

    looks like the order was
    3,4,2,1,5
