    The Rolling Bones guys burned up some stuff.... I bet it sounded great just before it melted down.

  6. Tim hit a piece of motorcycle exhaust after the 3, blew right rear tire and tore the radius rod out of the frame at 192mph. No spin.

    With the car count down and reports of the salt being good it surprises me that they already had to move course 1.

    New link every morning. He has music on right now while he runs out to where ever as it is a pretty much a one man show. If you hear music on today's broadcast it means that he is out of the trailer.

    Really liked this recap, appreciate the people that take the time to post. Can't think of a bigger thrill than building your own car and running it at Bonneville. Wish I would have tried 20 years ago!

    Looks like Poteet is doing what he does best.........'raising the bar'!!!!
    From their information:
    Back in inpound today.....We are going for a average speed record over 450mph.
    The engine definitely has the ability to this.

    We'll wait and see what they do tomorrow!!
