I need some help promoting spectators for the March event. Jessica wrote this up and ask me to get it out to all the forums. I everyone could slap it up on any forums that they are members of, that would help a lot.

We will make our 1st trip to Texas with the ZX-6.  Hard to believe, but we are ready.  We will leave North Carolina tomorrow.  Looking forward to a run down the texas mile.

A few second-hand reports from the Texas Mile today. Thanks to Tom Gates.

Jen Robertson went 230 on her stage 1 turbo Busa, a personal best.

Karl Gunter went 224 on his normally aspirated Busa, a personal best. The fastest normally aspirated standing mile record is 227, set by Mark Deluca of Team Forstall, and Karl is nipping at their heels.

I don't have any details, but Billy Shoemaker (current track record holder at 255) got off the bike a little too early, but is generally OK with a couple broken ribs. I am sorry to post such nonspecific info, but I thought it was better to mention it at least. I hope Billy recovers quickly.

No trouble Glen. The weather looks good for tomorrow, so hopefully there will be lots more.

Fred Vance made a shakedown pass on a newly-built normally aspirated Busa, and went 209. I think that Brenda will get her shot tomorrow. Fred has hopes for her to get a red hat this summer if all goes well.

I don't have much else, but I know he is in ICU, intubated, stable, not in surgery. He was conscious with the EMTs.

Our prayers are with him and his recovery. Serious injuries for sure. Hope rest of the week end is safe.

Joe I know if was a very hard fall. Fded talked to a witness tbat said the rear wasbed under breaking and the bike slid out a.d away from Karl. He tokk a tumble then slid. He was alert and responsive when the helo took him. The helo crew came back to the grack and said we was stable during the flight. His bike wasnt that bad. Just slid. The left side of his leathers had burn through. J wish I knew more. Concern is high with me Joe. I tbink Bill was at the hoslital with Billy, so the feeling at the track from phone calls was positive.
