I wondered if the second to last pass would have been a 5 sec pass w/o the wiggle.
When it went straight the last pass, I figured he was gone. 250 mph, hard to believe.

Yep. Looked identical to us also. But the jump in MPH was huge (8 I believe?) If you were watching at the stripe it was probably more apparent. The air changed big time yesterday. I was expecting them to get a 5 at MIR....



It's a great event and can't say enough for the racers who enjoyed people enjoying their efforts...

Very impressive. I wish they would bring back the pump gas drags though.

I was in Grand Rapids for a wedding and stayed a night at a buddys house in Grandville and we went on a motorcycle ride and ended up there. I knew I had saw the Jeep somewhere before but could not place it until you posted the thread. I was probably 50 ft up the road until the cops showed up and ruined all the fun.

Ah gotcha. Sorry you didn't get to see more shenanigans before the cops shut things down. They did it a lot earlier this year than in the past. We went to a different spot afterwards and had more fun.
