388.89131 quarter, 410.14940 first mile, 454.97423 middle mile, 482.16999 last mile, 464.30926 back door.  I'll post a pic of the slip if I can get it here, but still --

DANG!!  Decent speeds!  Corngratulations Dave and the entire Vesco team.

Now -- why's the exit speed slower than the last mile?  Did something happen?

The car is not hurt. Dave shut off a little early. 
I suspect we will see them go faster on their return run.
