It ain’t over. See Jensen’s story here (Asphalt and Rubber).
“Paul Thede had to once again back up the team’s accomplishment with another wicked fast run today, in order to get into the record books. Battling gusty cross-breezes, Thede put in an astonishing palindromic 217.712 mph time to set another LSR for Lightning, which officially comes in at 215.907 mph in the APS-Ω class.”
First. “wicked fast”? Please, Jensen. You’re not from Boston. You can’t say stuff like that.
Second. “gusty cross breeze”? Holy crap, I guess at over 200mph a 6mph breeze ain’t nuthin to sneeze at.
Third. Them are some damn ugly fingers.
