This morning, favorable weather condition. Chris Carr did a first run. Reached 355+ mph between mile 5 & 6 (timing mile), then between mile 6 & 7 engine explosion and fire. Automatic fire extinguisher started from inside. Extinguished when the Bub 7 Streamliner reached end of course at mile 11. No more run this year (to be officialized, a LSR is always the average of 2 mandatory runs).
Sam Wheeler reached 324+ mph on 1st run. May do return run before noon local hour…but maybe in a different class. The E-Z-Hook Streamliner is running in the 1350cc Motorcycle Streamlined Blown Fuel Class, and currently holds records in the 1350cc Streamlined Motorcycle Fuel Class at 294.855MPH, 1350cc Streamlined Motorcycle Gas Class at 285.747MPH and the Streamlined Motorcycle Blown Fuel Class at 332.410MPH (picture Bub 7 Streamliner at time of staging by Horst Roesler).
