**Steve**, Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 3:40pmx+(x-70) = 300

2x = 370

x = 185

So, he was 185 miles from the start, and 115 miles from the finish.

The whole race took 3600+41*60+48.2942 = 6108.2942 seconds, so

it took 185/300 * 6108.2942 seconds to get that far. Just convert that to hh:mm:ss in the normal way.
