Jack must have gone at least 150 to get the hat Marcia presented to him.  I'll post a link to the run logs when Tim puts it up.

 Our team had a great time at Loring The Rons Hobby Shop special roadster records set at the event are the fastest roadster records to date at Loring.  The records set on Wednesday with my son driving 206.768 at the mile and 229.088 at the mile and a half. Thursday my run with a high cross wind 204.194 at the mile and 224.680 at the mile and a half. Friday the winds continued to be high with cross wind speeds of 20 plus however even in the wind team driver Jeff Arnett was able to run over 200 MPH to gain entry into the LTA 200 MPH club setting another record all told Jeff set four records in the car.
 Total records set by the team 8 in three days not bad for a small less than 300 cube old 1950 Ford Flathead block with a supercharged overhead valve head conversion burning gasoline.

Sounds like a class that Stan Back would endorse.   lol8

Ronnie and his crew spent a day with Jack Gilford getting this belly tank sorted out and crewed it for him for the day.  I doubt he could have made a pass without their help.

Jack's a great guy! I saw a lot of people helping. Here's Kirk Asslyn towing him in.

Between racers and LTA officials I had MUCH help at Loring, without which I'd have gotten nowhere. A huge THANK YOU to all those who helped!
I'll certainly do my best to bring some crew members to future events.

It's good to know you can show up at the track, short handed and get the help you need.
Besides all the usual volunteers, Jorden Hanson teching cars when he really wanted to be racing.
My personal favorites, Bob Gobiel and Frank Walka encouraging me to get in Bob's fantastic car. And Joe Dalys words "You came down the middle like a freight train, pulled the chute... perfect!"
