Nottinghamshire batsman Michael Lumb smashed a career-best 221 not out but it was not enough to prevent their Division One match with Derbyshire petering out into a tame draw at Trent Bridge.
Lumb resumed on 115 as the home side took their total on to 436-8, while Luke Fletcher (64) secured his first half-century in four years.
But a failure by the two captains to agree a mutually suitable run chase meant both sides were simply chasing bonus points.
A good batting surface and some mediocre bowling saw 148 runs added to Nottinghamshire's overnight score in the morning session after they had resumed on 204-3.
Fletcher made the most of his advancement up the batting order, with Tim Groenewald smashed to the boundary four times in five balls after the Derbyshire attack had run out of puff after persisting with a series of short balls.
Wes Durston almost ended Fletcher's knock but Wayne Madsden failed to hold a difficult chance at midwicket with the batsman on 33.
Fletcher went on to reach his half-century soon after Lumb had passed 150 but the productive partnership of 123 was ended by Durston, who had Fletcher trapped lbw.
Derbyshire continued to pick up wickets at a steady rate, with Mark Turner (3-92) causing most of the damage as he picked up the final three wickets of the innings after Steven Mullaney had been dismissed by Groenewald (3-112).
Thunderstorms caused regular short breaks in play but they failed to dampen Lumb's spirits, whose impressive knock included 28 fours and a six.
Nottinghamshire remain fifth in the table after securing 11 points from the contest, while Derbyshire remain bottom of the pile after picking up nine points.
