Well, that was interesting...

Turn 40 Summary

Rund gives the engine a little push to 140 (natural 9) and takes 2nd place. Tatum finishes the podium at 100 with the nose across the line.

Long comes up one space short at 100 and will plot next turn.

Harley plots 100 then late brakes to 80 (natural 6). He then dives into the hairpin on the line with his last skill (modified 9). He almost runs the car right off the track but is able to keep it on the tarmac with an acrobatic tailspin.

Fritz, at 80, careens around the hairpin on the outside, avoiding the yellow machine (natural 6).

Baker plots 120 but with all of his options closed out, he late brakes with 1s (modified 7) and 1 wear before entering the hairpin for his last wear.

Kay also plots 120 and finds his choices are non-existent. He late brakes to 80 with dice (natural 3) and a wear.

The theme continues with Beckman braking down from 120 to 80. He's fine with 2 skill (modified 2) and a wear.

Brandt plots 100 but with a full track, also late brakes. With no instructions otherwise, he defaults to using wear for the slow down.

Ghost: 120, LB(7)+1w

Two more cross the line, one more spins in the hairpin...

Turn 41 Summary

Long comfortably crosses at 120 for 4th place.

Fritz pushes his nose across the line at 100 for 5th.

Harley recovers from his spin at 60.

Baker continues at his pre-ordained 80 to pull even with the #27.

Kay, at 100, must go outside with the line essentially unavailable due to traffic. He takes his big chip and one wear to careen around the hairpin (modified 2) and set up a drag race for 6th place.

Beckman dives into the 60's at 100 for his last wear and 2s on the chance (modified 7). Oh, he just misses and puts the machine into a spin!

Brandt plays it conservative at 60 on the line.

Ghost: 100, LB2s(2), 1w line
