The mid-pack forms a little tighter; some low wear numbers at the front of the field.

Turn 30 summary:

Miller's second NPR costs him one wear, and the RM plot takes him through the corner 60/80 at 100 for his last two.
Burnett is poised to handle the chicane next turn.
Schulz crosses into lap 3 at 120.

Bauska pushes his acceleration successfully to drop in to P4.
Brandt does 140 and uses the slip to even up with Schulz.
Kennard also at 140 but with no drafting partner he remains inside.
Brown's 140 plus the slip from Brandt brings him into the pack.

Kennington finishes through the 80 and 60 at 80 with wear already paid.
Haskell sheds two wear through the 60s at 100, choosing to stay in the center.
Baker is also through on the 60s, one wear lighter at 80.
Blizzard hits the 60 at 100 parting with just one wear and throwing two skill at the dice to complete the move.
