Flash News. New Absolute Land Speed Record.


I wish it would have happened while I was in Bonneville. Yesterday during a private Meet, Chris Carr aboard the Bub #7 of Denis Manning broke a new Land Speed Record. This new absolute record is pending ratification by FIM. The speed reached by Bub # 7 was as follow. Entry: 362.742 mph. Mile: 367.809. Km: 367.953 mph. Exit: 372.534 mph. Congrats Chris, Denis and all the Bub # 7 Crew.

    Dennis has the will to go very fast and he has been in that direction for a long time. I wish that we knew what that speed costs. Dennis is not the average guy this is what he does. It has been a lot of years since we last had a conversation Las Vegas I think. Again Way to Go Dennis you are doing what you do and liking what you do. My best Gary Bang

    Congrats to Dennis & Chris, this has been a long time comming.
    When we set the 1990 LSR @ 322.150 MPH Dennis was on the salt with us & told me he would take the record from us(Easyrider Streemliner). This new LSR is the result of years of effort without
    ever giving up the challenge. A truley commendable achievment, way to go Dennis!
