Brown continues at 120 shifting to the 100 space after the racing line
Orlandi has the initiative at 100 and takes the 100s all the way
Kellison runs the racing line at 100 but is forced to the middle lane to finish the corner
Beckman flies into Brabham at 140 shedding two wear on the line but can't clear the corner

Kennard starts the Brabham line at 100 for free
Incorpora's acceleration gets him to 140 keeping in the middle for line access
Benham is first out of the 3-wide at 160 moving to the outside of the black race car
Blizzard grabs high gear as well, the inside lane is all that's available to him

Ingraham looks for a slip at 140 but finds a wall in front of him
Baker pushes his already damaged engine and gets smoke and noise.
Haskell awes the crowd at 180, safely passing the smoking light blue race car

Note: Thursday, November 25 is U.S. Thanksgiving Day and a traditional 4-day
"weekend". There will be no turn due on Friday, November 26 and no reminder
sent that morning. However, if I have all moves I will adjudicate.
