Seems George Poteet was able to clock 369.5xx mph on Thursday...upping his earlier run of 332...must have seen an older post about his previous run...
That kind of jump in speed would seem to reason that the salt his improving!

Thanks for all of the encouragement :) :) :)

Poteet has several different motors but usually goes the fastest with his small 330-CI .........its all in the turbos and the fuel-mix 8)

Just read where some lowlife scum has stolen all an Italian motorcycle team's things except the bike which they were washing at the time!

Strip the thieves naked, Fillet the thieves balls, and give them lots of shallow cuts all over and then drag them through the salt before you get real medieval on their asses.
