Jason McVicar has become the first person to set a Bonneville SCTA record over 250 mph on a siton motorcycle. He ran 250 and change yesterday and backed up this morning at 249.9 today. This should give Jason is AA license. Congrats Jason and Scott Guthrie. Craig Hoffman running the Hoffman Rear engined modified roadster ran two runs of 268 in the last mile for a record in the class. Steve Atwell now at the helm of the Hot Rod Camaro ran a 248 down run and backed up with a 250.5 return. This was in the C/BGALT class. There were a lot of return runs in the morning but technical difficulties plaqued me today and yesterday. So this might be the last broadcast depending on if this laptop crashes again.

I do see Ack Attack streamliner making their way up to the start for some hopefully exiciting runs today.
