All builds in except one. Mike takes the default build per Redscape House Rules.

Notes
- One triple with Michael, John, and Paul having the same set-up.
- Only two cars with top speed of 160.
- ACC and Brakes are a mixed bag of 40's and 60's.
- Two start speed of 100 and only one at 20.
- Half the field goes with a full boat of tires.
- Four drivers put a point into skill, somewhat unusual.

Starting bid deadline: Friday, June 5th @ 7 a.m. EDT (11 a.m. UTC)

The green flag drops, twelve engines scream, and the crowd roars!

Seven drivers push their start speeds and all succeed. The dice gods are looking kindly upon the track today. Well that won't last...

The 100 SS cars each advance several spots in the field with Dygert leading the way. No other comments today but, going forward, expect a more detailed run-down.

Please look for errors in both car placement and resource tracking. Mistakes happen.

Turn 2 Deadline: Wednesday, June 10th @ 7 a.m. EDT (11 a.m. UTC)

No incidents to report as the cars funnel into the narrow portion of the track.

I'm not sure why that first chicane is labeled Traguardo, as that means 'finish line'. I think it may be in error so I'll just refer to it as the chicane. The chicane was added to the track after Ayrton Senna lost his life in the Tamburello corner in 1994, the site of many high speed crashes.

Turn 2 Summary

Dygert weaves his way through the chicane at 100 in the 60's for 2 wear.

Kubala has initiative at 100. He follows the red machine, also at 2 wear. Kay eases up to 80 and finds the exit row for a wear.

Schipper keeps his foot on the gas at 120 and sheds a tire on the outer rail.

Harley has initiative at 120. He dives into the middle lane and bumps 2 wear. Harrington, at 100 and the slip, attacks the chicane on the inside for 2 wear, picking up two positions.

Ricaud takes the initiative at 140 and careens into the chicane on the run-off lane for 2 tires. Puddifoot sedately pulls up to the chicane on the inside at 100.

Hoyt sets up the corner at 120 in the middle. Bernhardt, at 120 and the slip, makes it 3-wide at the chicane entrance.

Lind keeps up with the chase pack at 120 and the bonus. Walling brings up the rear at 80, pleased not to be in the traffic jam ahead.

Most of the field is through the chicane.

Paul briefly pulls off the track where his crew awaits to give his car a fresh paint job. He is now in Bubba Wallace's Black Lives Matter car, run just a few nights ago at Martinsville. I would not normally allow a car to change liveries in the middle of a race but this seemed to be an exceptional case.

Turn 3 Summary

Dygert clips a tire in Villenueve at 120. Kubala keeps the pace at 120 and the bonus. Kay runs down the straight at 120.

Harrington increases speed to 120 and finishes out the chicane with wear already paid. Harley drops to 100 through the 60 to stay on Kevin's side panel.

Schipper taps the brakes to 100 and burns a wear in the 60's (one wear already paid). He has to burn off speed on the outer rail of Tamburello. Ricaud over-brakes to 80 with 2s (modified 2) and finishes the chicane.

Bernhardt has the initiative at 120. He scrapes off 2 tires in the 80's and pulls even with Bruno.

Puddifoot runs the chicane 80's for a wear at 100. Hoyt does the same but has to move to the outer rail in Tamburello.

Lind takes it easy through the chicane at 60 to clear. Walling pulls up to the corner at 120.

Turn 4 Deadline: Monday, June 15th @ 7 a.m. EDT (11 a.m. UTC).

Michael has retired from the race. If a replacement is found by Wednesday, the car would re-enter the track at its previous position.

Turn 4 Summary

Dygert flies into Tosa at 120 on the runoff lane for a wear. Kubala, at 100, grabs the open line.

Kay runs Villeneuve for free at 100 and sits on the line.

Schipper, at 100 and the bonus, pulls even with his benefactor.

A stunning move by the Pennzoil driver puts him in the lead.

Turn 11 Summary

Kubala gets the initiative at 120 and careens into the demanding Rivazza corner. Just managing to keep the car on the track with 2w and 3s on the dice (modified 6), he then completes the corner with 2 more wear. Dygert dumps 2 wear in the first Rivazza corner at 100. Both cars should have some clean air for a while.

Harrington pulls up to Rivazza on the line at 140.

Harley, at 140 and with the bonus, pulls even with the #32. Schippper tucks in behind the #27 car at 140.

Kay keeps up with the pack at 120 and the bonus. Bernhardt takes an RM plot of 140 (NPR#1: Warning).

Both Ricaud and Hoyt burn 2 tires in Variante Alta at 120 and stay side-by-side.

At 100, Puddifoot is the beneficiary of a slip, allowing him to stay with his running partners at the cost of only 1 wear. Walling dives into Variante Alta at 120 and 2 wear. Did he push the 'Go' button?
