I don’t recall seeing this started yet so here we go…

If Callan/Cosker are present I will have to pick them for Top Gun with a 210mph pass. If they are not, I will pick the Bud Select MTI as I predict they will top 190mph this year.

Only 6 more days, I can't wait. The event is a definite highlight every year.

What does everyone else think? Who will be there running for Top Gun?

I'm rooting for team Bud Select. That vid Dave posted a while ago was pretty impressive

Dave and John will be on top again.
220, 221 whatever it takes.

With the shootout moving this years numbers will never be produced again.

It should be interesting with all the turbine boats running this year. Dave Scott and JT are going to be a tough team to beat, But I know the Callan camp has NOT been sitting on their azzes either. Wish I could be there.
Anyway, I have to go with the Callan team, with the Bud Select Mystic 50 running a close second.

Won't Reggie bring his "Cat Killer" & scoop up the entire litter box?

Doubt Reggie will show up

Dean, I believe the MTI turbine will outrun the piston powered Mystic.

I believe the mystic 50 of bud select will make only 1 run for promo purposes. I think the focus is the turbine boat and the MTI.
