Maybe you need a cattle prod for the starting line next year.

I don't know, other than I posted a photo of his car (8797) earlier.  Gary Miller is listed as co-owner.

A few more speed shots.

While I didn't get a shot of it, Speed Demon has been rebuilt after the fire and made a run attempt...but it shot at ducks for a mile,  then turned out.

Not the best pic of the blower, since I was focused on the tailpipe, but better than noithing

Fast Freddie on a test run, best mph was in the 230's on a short pass.  Seems the rookie announcer doesn't know who Fred is and was quick to report speed.  Didn't get all of the mile info. :cheers:

I wondered too.

Did you see that Randy upped your Buick record?

Norris broke the rearend in his Studebaker truck.

It is tough being here at home during Speedweek.

Even on vacation in Guatemala, I can still listen to Freddy- aka "The Lüg"- skate 'er on down at 230+. Technology is pretty sweet.

Good thing I'm not listening to the announcers...I'm on the officials' FM.  Here are some shots of Freddy's run.
