Pics from the Texas Mile.

http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/...395&uid=511889

A turbo, nitrous busa did 230 mph!

There is a pic of a yellow GT40 and there is another pic of a cloud of dirt at the starting line. That's the GT40 after it spun out into the infield. Cool to watch all that $$$ go offroading.

The GT40 did 222mph. There was about 5 of them there.

Was on of the GTs sporting Missouri tags? Local guy here has 3 or 4 of them not to mention a slew of other very cool Ford iron.

Cool run...!

On a 1 Mile course do you think a different rear gear would help utilize the power band and possibly fully utilize 6th gear...???

Best thread I've seen in a looong time. What's the story behind this, a public highway that's officially blocked off for this event?

Codeman: I didn't look at plates, could've been.

Hula: The second vid is from Lonestar Raceway after Tony blew the radiator hose off the motor and the thermostat was a concern.

Truitts car had water pump issues and only did 115mph.

Wingnutz: Yes a different gear would utilize 6th. Tony brought 3 different sets of gears. We were chasing fuel and timing issues on Saturday and made 4 runs all day. Fog shortened the time for runs on Sunday and we didn't have time to do a rearend change. The bottom line is we needed more than a mile track.

8flat: Old airstrip, they're supposed to have 3 events for next year.
