Just spoke to the AMF Camp. The real show is Mr Warby in his new Jet powered machine. For some reason, he actually wants to break his old record of 317. He will probably hit 200+ at Crecent City as they are still in a test mode. There's be a PBS film crew in the air.

AND ---- Oh I really shouldn't say, Have fun....... at the AMF Speed show.
