Starting grid:


Lights out!


On turn 7, our only change for the lead, as Don goes inside of Rob:


But it doesn't last long, as Rob regains the lead next turn.


The field at the end of Lap 1: Rob, Don, Chris L, Jack Dave, Phil, Chris M., Chris B.


Turn 17, Chris L passes Don for P2.


Rob crosses the line to start L3. Jack slows to 40, hoping to force Dave outside, but Dave instead *force-passes* on the 20 space and then takes a Chance roll for 60-over to take over P4!


Two turns later, Jack tests his Top on the long front straight with 1 skill - and comes up 1 short with an 11, cutting his Top to 120.


Turn 37, heading towards the final corners, Dave gets by Don for P3, in part thanks to still having wear left.


Rob crosses the line on turn 39 for the win! Back in the hairpin, Don has slowed and forced Jack to roll to late brake (because he can't do math and see that this was the likely outcome). Chris B is also forced to late brake, but spends a wear.


Chris L and Dave cross in P2 and P3. Jack, with chips to spend and little to lose, takes a Chance roll at 60 on the 20 space (1w and 1 -3 skill) and makes it to pull ahead of Don for P6.


Chris pushes his Top (with a -3 for an auto pass). Jack pushes Acc and Top and passes both rolls to hit 140. Phil crosses in P4, Chris B in P5, and Jack in P6. Don would finish P7 and Chris M in P8.
