Last week, Speed Demon pushed their record for the world’s fastest piston engine car to 451.933 mph and set a new record for C/BFS at 437.183. That’s fast. The old record was 390.
There is just something so moving to us about the pursuit of ever increasing speeds. We race on our feet, we race on horses, we race soap box derby cars with our dad’s, we race motorcycles, jet cars, snow mobiles, snow boards, lawn mowers….it is a central theme of human nature (well, maybe not the lawnmowers).
Anyway, hats off to Ron Main and George Poteet. On the salt, there is little bluster, ego, or over commercialized drama. The measure of a man’s/or woman’s success is simply- how fast didya go?
Who will be the first girl or guy to be faster than anyone else ever on a Motus or a Baby Block powered vehicle….?
