PRESS RELEASE

Team Vesco’s Turbinator II was inducted into the Dry Lakes Racing Hall of Fame on Saturday, May 4th. The induction ceremony was held at Mendenhall’s Museum in
Buellton, CA. Vesco’s Turbinator II and Danny Thompson’s Challenger 2 were on display together with the Gyronaut motorcycle streamliner in front of a large, very enthusiastic crowd.

Turbinator II and driver Dave Spangler had a very successful year of racing on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 2018. Team Vesco won the Hot Rod Magazine Top Time Trophy
at Speed Week. Turbinator II then set the fastest event record in SCTA’s 70-year history at 482.646 MPH in September. In October Spangler clocked a 493.037 MPH flying mile
with an exit speed of 503.332 MPH. Team Vesco became the first wheel driven car to break the 500 MPH barrier.

Rick Vesco, builder and owner of the car, has established the goal for 2019 to be an OFFICIAL RECORD over 500 MPH. An official record requires two one mile runs with
an average speed over 500 MPH.

Pre-entry completed. Car number and entry confirmation received. Room booked at the Best Western Plus in Wendover.

Just need the salt to dry up and do the long drive.

I just noticed that SCTA has published the pre-entry list for SpeedWeek on their Facebook page.  It's 10 or more pages - I won't try to put it here now.  Maybe someone will send a link. . . 8-)

Unless it's crazy, ambitious and delusional, it's not worth our time!

Thanks, Jim - except I'm supposed to go to bed now and just spent minute after minute getting quizzical looks from Nancy as I worked my way through the list "just to see who's going to be there", I told her.

Okay, I'll look at the rest of the pages later.  Thanks for the link.
