I'll try to get more pictures up soon. We have done a lot of work to make sure the car is in racing condition. She was brand new last year. 2017 will be her sophomore year. As a D class gas lakester, we have a long way to go. I think we will push over 200 MPH this year if things go the way we want them to. We think the car could go much faster than 200. If anybody has any questions or wants to see specific pictures, please ask through a private message. Thanks. Hopefully there will be many more pictures to come. I hope to find some of my pictures of the process of changing a few small things on the car. I want pictures on here that show the car in its never-ending state of being tweaked/changed/upgraded/perfected/etc. Thanks for checking us out.

Well, the car is on the salt. It passed right through tech inspection without any problems Thursday. Some of the guys (My brother Gabe, my father Mike, and two friends John and Dave) are out there already. I'll be heading out there with the rest of the group Monday. Feel free to come find us in the pits and say hello. Car #409 Blue Goose Racing.

Speed Week 2017 is waning. It's Wednesday and the tracks shut down about 10 minutes ago. I managed to get the car just over 163 on the short track. Mike Gabe and Dave are going to try to push towards the 175 mark tomorrow, and then the Blue Goose will make its journey back to Lansing Mi. This has been a fun week so far.
