Congrats!!   Faster than the H Diesel STREAMLINER record!!   Steve's Rampage is the fastest 1500cc diesel at Bonneville regardless of body class.

Google Festus, MO.  A peg legged guy with chin whiskers and a cowboy hat appears.

With that as a heritage I will try to fill you in. They cherry picked a class and built a truck.

I had a short glimpse of Steve. He was relaxing in the top of the rental truck box. He was not

comfortable because there was no humidity so he stationed his guards at the very back as he

relaxed. It may have been the first time that they had crossed the State Line but they were prepared.

There was a lot of evidence of a woman's influence but he didn't bring his wife. Left handed, only has

a box with 8 colors of crayons, and was removed from Sunday School class because he brought his pet

turtle and growled erdun, erdun, erdun as he slide him across the table. Doesn't play well with others.

Has not offered to share the trophy with anyone. A mechanical genius from the

beginning. Now a record at Bonneville on his first two passes. There's nothing to this stuff.  The Mayor

told the Police Chief to award Steve a Get Out'a Jail Free card but it expires the day after Halloween.

The card for his wife never expires.

Feel sorry for him? No Way.

Respect him.... TO THE MAX.

Welcome to Bonneville.

Congratulations!  :cheers: :cheers:

Now he is probably planning on some diesel rig to climb Pikes Peak.

And win it.

He may well do it.

Congratulations Steve on a job well done.
