an an unrelated note I am getting on a plane and flying to reno in a few hours for a work thing. This will be the first time (out of 36ish ) that I have ever been in Reno not in september. Not really excited. Hah!
One thing to remember is that any speeds after the change will still not be an apples to apples comparison to the "old days". Pylons have been moved since the last time they used pylon to pylon distance to calculate speeds.
Well, I just go to see the Big Iron go FAST! Who cares about records. Fastest motor sport in the world! Respect to the other race classes, especially RUBY in the bipes. They all get to have fun and go fast and compete. All about having fun safely.
