Mr. 230MPH!
« on: July 12, 2013, 06:04:39 AM »
ok just so everyone knows Mr. 230mph [aka Ransom T] does not do the Facebook thing.

so for everyone that congratulated him on Facebook, he didn't see it.

Hey Ransom....congratulations! on your 230mph record setting run.

I know it wasn't a easy journey, but you did it brother! and it was most entertaining to your fellow racers.

so slap a new set of rings in it and destroy that record with a 240+ run!
who would have guessed it would take so long to go so fast for such a short time?

"Wrath of Turk?" I bet you Keith could tell you a thing or two about that. After all he's just the husband.

If a man is alone in the deep woods and speaks, is he still wrong?
