Be safe Mark and Scotty,.....that ought to really screw up the traffic going over the Bay Bridge. But at the speed they are running they will be out of sight before they can back too much up.

The current record is 14 minutes and 7 seconds, which they set last year...They are shooting for 12 minutes. It was bad conditions last year. The forecast as of right now looks good.

Good luck guys!!!
