    Looks like some rare fan and photog ops in the back-markers: the A-model, Wildcat, P-40 and Spitfire are on the list within 5 mph. Potentially some of the best groupings in ages!

    479.364 for Voodoo, (489 with the old timing if my math was correct).

    I'm guessing Strega will go up during the second session?

    Hope so. Though it is fun to watch Strega race through heats.....when the canopy stays on....

    Maybe they just want a nice clear course so they can post a 505?

    That would be wicked!!! I'm going to guess Jay puts up a 465ish (current timing). No reason to seriously thrash the engine just yet.

    Voodoo left a lap open for tomorrow, I imagine in case Strega puts up a faster lap. The weather for session 2 doesn't sound as good as earlier or tomorrow, we shall see

    How does Dreadnought's time compare to last year? Looks like top three at the end of the week!

    A little bit slower, but nothing significant. Unless Strega or Voodoo breaks, or Sawbones installed NOS during the off season, I'd say that's a safe bet.

    Strega went up in the 2nd session and did one lap around 438 (timed with my average speed phone app, so nothing official) He never called for the clock. There was lightning on the west side of the course and rain on the field just as he touched down. He'll probably go up again tomorrow.

    Full throttle till you see God, then turn left!
