The leaders open up the gap while two of the drivers that still have some rubber on their tires pick up positions.

Turn 39 summary:
Tatum uses his maximum acceleration to get to 140 around the kink. Bauska does the same and then uses the slip to move even with the leader. Incorpora drops one wear around Samson and moves inside. Ling gets the initiative at 100 and sheds one wear in the corner.

Mossman does 80 around Samson with no rubber left and starts for the inside. Rando gets the jump on Miller scrubbing off one wear at 100 and picking up P6. Miller holds 80 around the corner. Kennington hits the approach to Samson at 80.

Welage rounds D132 at 100 through the inner 80s for one wear and grabs the tailpipe of Kennington's race car. Blizzard follows Welage's tire tracks also leaving one wear in the inner 80s. Hancock finishes the straightaway at 140 and sets up for the corner.

Next deadline: turn 40 due Monday, September 11 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

A puff of smoke from a chaser as the leaders maintain their distance.

Turn 40 summary:
Tatum and Bauska match 160s as they hit the approach to Gresil. Incorpora and Ling also match 160s but Ling gets a slip enabling him to pull even with the black race car.

Rando attempts to exceed both acceleration and top speed with one skill each but double sixes on the acceleration roll foils his plan and damages his power plant. Mossman makes a naked acceleration roll (3) to reach 140 and settle in behind Rando. Miller keeps within his car's capabilities at 120 out of Samson and a slip keeps him behind Mossman. Kennington urges his bald tires around Samson at 80.

Welage grabs P8 shedding two wear in the Samson inner 80s at 120. Blizzard takes the inner 80s at 100 dropping one wear and getting a slip from Welage to keep with him. Hancock takes the inner 80s of D132 at speed.

Next deadline: turn 41 due Wednesday, September 13 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Mostly friendly dice as we prepare for a shoot-out to the finish.

Turn 41 summary:
Bauska temporarily takes the lead back with a 140 move around the Gresil 140s, but Tatum's 120 move around the inside puts him back into P1. Ling drives hard into the corner shedding two wear in the 140s at 180. Incorpora goes in hard as well at 160 around the 120s dropping two wear.

Rando follows, knocking off two wear in the 120s at 160. Mossman stays on Rando's tailpipe at 160. Miller plots 160 and gets a slip from Mossman to pull even with the red race car. Welage must have appeased the dice gods as he makes two naked rolls; one for acceleration (7) and one for top speed (6) enabling him to hit 200 down the straightaway.

Blizzard also is in the dice gods good graces as he puts one skill each to his acceleration roll (modified 9, phew!) and his top speed roll (modified 3) to reach 180. He uses a double slip to pull alongside Welage. Kennington is not so lucky as his naked acceleration roll (10) results in a damaged engine and a speed of 140. Hancock preserves his last wear point by rounding Samson at 80 on the inside.

Next deadline: turn 42 due Wednesday, September 20 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
