    I believe Lyle had to make 6 passes. Which is a pretty big difference in my book.

    Only 4 consecutive were required, however.

    Six passes were required, the fastest four out of the six were averaged to establish the result.

    You are incorrect, only 4 passes were required in 1989. 6 passes would be the equivalent of over 10 laps at reno

    I have been basing the 6 passes on info from John Slack, which may have been incorrect per info in the other thread.


    This is a silly dispute and I apologize for my part in it!


    Voodoo is great! Steve-o is great! Lyle Shelton will always be a legend!

    Go FAST!

    Just for Nostalgia...this is in Krakow in the back corner of the Polish Aviation Museum. Hopefully this works, just switched to Imgur.

    Yes, I have no idea where the heck the six passes came from. I got it in my head years ago.

    That's why I put +/- 500 mph.
    I had him on the clock for that too. 1/2 lap though.........

    Hey, if we are counting the half laps, I think Mike Brown holds that record at 510 or something like that.....
