They rolled you thru at 30 mph ???? Wasn't the old shooters course a standing start mile.??? If anybody is going 30 mph at the start, that is a huge advantage !!!!

No turbines this year? Geico? Aqua Mania? Others?
I didn't see any.. I watched that Live Stream all day.. That was so nice. It wasn't ESPN but it was a really good job. Got to put a lot a faces with names!!


I liked the new format at Capt. Ron's. I see some didn't like the rolling start but I thought it was cool.

Congrats to all that won. From the 91mph Pontoons to the Skaters that were all within a 1mph until the end. That was awesome.

I think you meant to say Skater and MTI. Bob Bull's MTI ended the battle of the Skater vs MTI drag race winning both times and also had the second highest top speed of 177. David Scott posted an incredible 196 with an alcohol piston engine Mystic.

Didn't it used to be a standing start at shooters? We always had to start from a stop.....

Pretty sure they used let the big dogs competing for top gun do a rolling start and there was not a 30mph limit.
