     A good article and  photos but the last "reflection picture" looks more like Ronnie Roadster's blown flatty rear engine modified roadster than Frank and Jim's Das Bullet lakester to me.

     Both teams have paid more than their fair share of dues over lifetimes in motor sports to become record holders in their respective classes.

There was a group running around with press garb on filming and talking to racers and fans. Nice friendly crew of 4 or 5.

Did anyone get their information as to who they were?

I agree with Ed on the "reflection picture". Sure looks likes Ron's flathead RMR to me!

Renown automotive designer Raymond Loewy had no idea the elegant 1950s Studebaker design would be embraced by the land speed racing world where his slippery bodies would carry drivers to Bonneville glory 53 years later.


minor math correction.... the 53 Studes are now 63...

. . . and the Stupidbaker was in C class, not G.

Pretty informative outside of the minor typos.  Trying to figure out the "dignitaries", whether they were the legislator or on the staff, was confusing.
