The body is a bit of a mess now as the tire blew just before the finish line and we still did 275 mph in 5.587 seconds.
The other guys in the photo, the Bailey Bros., are from Queensland. Their fuel shut-off vibrated half off. That took all 8 pistons, 5 sleeves, the burst panel, and supercharger. Later in the evening they ran against a top fueler (as we couldn't front) and the top fueler had a huge fireball in the traps (John Buchanan was the driver).
Hope everyone has a great new year and all the best for 2002.
