At least he was doing something he enjoyed, the riding part, not the crashing part I mean.

Uhg, I am crushed. To be clear, Bill Warner's set a record of 311.945 last summer, so it isn't like this was new territory for him. I was at Bonneville when Cliff Gullet made his last run. We just missed Dave Owen at Maxton. Nothing we have done in vintage was "fast" by any real criteria, but... makes a guy think, don't it.

Godspeed.
