The Stude is on the course at about the four mile and approaching the timed stretch.

Pulled the chute at about the four and a half.  No idea why he pulled the chute - engine still running and sounding like the motor's okay.

The crew is at the car with the driver and fire.  No incident -- driver okay, no fire, no loose parts.  Don't know why he pulled the chute.  Cook said that the driver had been told that because he's a pretty new driver that it's okay to quit if he wasn't happy with the run.

Eva is about five minutes from ready to run - in the bike and waiting for a clear course.  Studebaker will go back to the spectator viewing area out here and then Eva can make her run.

Course is clear, Eva is in the bike, fire and ambulance in position here by the tower.  

I was mentioning on the stream how wet the salt appears to be as it flies off the tires and into the fenderwells of the fire truck.  Drippy -- damp.  That's as he drove across the salt next to the course -- on the course is hard and dry.

Electric bike is under way.

Through the three mile, in sight here at timing.

Boogie-ing at gooooood speed!!!

Exit 268.536

270.224 mile.  Woo-HOOO!

Cook just radioed and said he'll bring Eva here to let me have her talk on the stream about the run.  I did some quick and dirty math and come up with about 250 hp input to the motor (375 v times 500 amps divided by 736 w/hp = that 250-ish number.

We're on a break - nobody ready to run, so we'll eat lunch and let Eva talk.
