Day One on the Salt is wrapped up...
The big news: 294 MPH!!
|Here we go!|
Here are the highlights from the crew:
Dan: "Not sinking into the marsh half a mile past the 8 mile marker!"
Dru: "Seeing that the 2010 aero package was worth the effort"
Mike: "Hearing that Danny Thompson walked away safely from his wreck"
Sarah: "Jumping out of the truck and hugging my boy after a 294 MPH run"
The parachutes didn't open the way they should have today so it took Dan three miles to slow the car down. We'll take another test run tomorrow to see if some changes we made make a difference. Otherwise Dan will be pulling the chutes right after the 5th mile to avoid going off the graded track. Today's run took Dan past the 8th mile and into some soft salt. The crew got a workout pushing the car back to the return road!

What will tomorrow bring? Stay tuned!
