Flashpoint 436 with 451 exit.  Sounded very strong.

That’s on Speed Demon’s 423 A/BFS record!

Don’t know why, but they just did a handful of record return runs on the short course.

USFRA said for those going to impound this morning that they would allow them to attempt their record runs at 1:00 PM today, 5:00 PM today, or tomorrow morning as usual.
