You bet. 266 on a motorcycle in the dirt is mind blowing. Warner and I were just shaking our heads when we heard it on the comms. Hudson needs a friggin' wheelbarrow for those cojones!!

Fuel in the pipe after pulling the shutoff. They did service and ran again.

Did some math.  Final points as follows (but not taking into consideration class changes for meeting points champ requirements):

1. 4240 Hondata
2. 7 Aardema Braun Lattin
3. 123 Erik Hanson
4. 9999 Rice Vigeant
5. 203 Burns Calloway Warnock

1. 2442 Chris Rivas
2. 760 Derek McLeish
3. 68 John Noonan
4. 744 Kayla Rivas
5. 659 Schaefer & Chambers

Special congrats to the Rivas family fielding two Harley's in the top 5 with Chris having a very fast 200+mph bike (The Rivas' are Milers).  Another special note to Ralph Hudson for his crazy, fastest man on two wheels on the dirt 266mph pass - another Miler!  Milers are well represented on the bike side!

Funny thing is when I started in 1974 the "old" guys said that Studebakers and roadsters were pretty equal speedwise.

Over the years many many things have changed especially with the the fast coupes as we know and Studebakers have been relegated to the Classic class but that statement is much more poignant today with Dave Davidson and Brandon Leggitt running within 2 mph of each other at El Mirage than it has ever been.

When you are lucky enough to see either of the these cars compete it is always a treat. Whatever you are doing when one of them starts up on the line, you stop whatever you are doing just to listen and watch them push off. I guarantee you will hear the entire mile and 3/10's. At the end of every one of their runs I just can't seem to help myself from stating "God I love this S--t".

Only back here for a second.....

I COMPLETELY agree with what Mr. Tone just posted.
When Brandon came to the line on Saturday, the world stopped for a second.
In about a minute the world rotated and 275 MPH was announced,
Absolutely INCREDIBLE run!

Also, INCREDIBLE was the 266 run by Ralph Hudson.

OK, I gone again.
