H/BFS record is 324 by Costella/Yacoucci.

I think that's a good first out speed to achieve. Time to go back to the drawing board.

Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.

We were getting ready to make another pass but when we fired the car in the pits we heard some unwelcome noise from the clutch or gear box. Not sure what it is yet. The leak in the intercooler wasn't really that big of a deal. We will get her all fixed up. Maybe we can run it in October.  The motor had only a basic tune up at first. we were geting some good tuning data on the last two runs.
 
I felt we ran pretty darn good for the first out on a brand new car. Got D through AA license.  Running on low power and only through 3rd gear. The car handles very well. Lots of people were complaining about the condition of coarse 1. Me, The Salt Virgin that I was, didn't know any better. I thought it was okay. I ran the right side and things felt real good to me.

I had a blast. Can't wait to go back.

You were laying it down as you went past the timing slip stand.

You accomplished a lot and did it with class.

Thanks to all of you.

Without Turbo Rick's tireless efforts, Spark Plug Gary's perfect wiring and support from the entire White Goose Bar Racing Team, there was no way we could have made Speed Week. I couldn't have imagined a better first time out. The car handled great and felt solid as a rock.
