Mike, thank you for being our liaison to Gairdner.

Russ - KEEP SHOOTING!

If everything holds together, I think they have a chance to absolute slay it.

I'm profoundly saddened that Freud couldn't make it - he earned this privilege.

Per Russ Meeks Instagram,
"Dropped a valve just before the 3 went through the 3 at 289 pulled the heads cleaned. Out the garbage massage the pistons put on a new set of heads in the morning should be ready to run by noon"

I wonder if that was Wilbur or Orvill

I just got out from the Lake. The liner had its second shake done run last night and ran 360ish mph. Looked and sounded great. Valerie also had a good run at 328mph. Track in good nick apart from some damage from a roll over from the Bronze Aussie.

Reading the text along side Russ' instagram photos it appears Marlo is done for this meet. They blew a clutch with lots of collateral damage.
