9 drivers push and 3 mis-shift. See the chart for details

Turn 1 summary:
Brown jumps out to the quick lead and starts the line into Brabham
Kellison follows closely at 100 with no push
Beckman's engine cooperates and moves him into P2 on the inside
Baker is one of 3 to miss a shift

Kennard keeps with the front pack at 120
Incorpora drops two lengths off the green race car at 80
Orlandi is built for 100 and he does that.
Ingraham at 80 tucks in behind his row-mate

Blizzard is hard on the gas and attaches himself to the mid-pack
Benham has trouble finding a gear and starts the race at 40
Mossman is happy with his 20 start speed
Haskell's mis-shift finds him moving only a couple inches

Next deadline: turn 2 due Wednesday, October 20 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC
