Brandon Leggitt set that up after they made their record run in "the Beast." Some of the media guys laughed at how quickly a "racer" lined up a photo shoot in just a few hours with basically no notice. He thought it would make a great picture and I have to agree...😁

That was totally cool.  During the live-stream broadcast, you could hear Brandon talking to Slim and Ron to ask all Studes if they could gather together for a pic.

" With almost 170 new records being added to the SCTA Record Book, it definitely made for a successful Speed Week. Congratulations to all of the record breakers, their teams, and especially, the track crews who did an incredible job on the racing surface! "

That certainly says a lot right there. Darn sorry we missed it this year

Having the pleasure to be one of those who set a record by the second morning and then by Tuesday morning my son doing the same reading the article brings me back to the salt and the fantastic surface conditions. it certainly was one for the ages. To all of the SCTA workers and volunteers you efforts are greatly appreciated.    :cheers:
