    Sam,

    I'll come by and see you in Sept and give you a special Section 3 decal. They add a bit more mph.

    and get you additional "love".

    Dago ran 507 in '03...how is that not a "true" 500+ MPH lap?

    You must be completely missing the point?

    "true" by many of us, old timers included, would be using the standard measurement of point to point, rather than some enlarged theoretical course measurement.

    1964-2002, as well as every other air racing venue, ever, has used the point to point system. Same thing in the auto-world.

    The fake measurements were invented in 2003 strictly to push a headline when RARA needed a headline. Following the $$$ loss of 9/11.
