Updates from Maxton

Only got one run in today between the rain. Ran an official 149.5 mph. We are crazy over geared for the mile, running 3.6 final drive right now! Put the largest nitrous jets we have into her and hoping to push the gear a little better tomorrow. Tom went 120mph on the hornet, his best run at maxton so far. Unfortunately a 200+ mph motorcycle crashed toward the end of the day and the poor guy that was riding it was actually was found unresponsive and not breathing by the EMT guys, they were able to resuscitate him and they hi tailed him to the hospital, he unfortunately did not make it and passed away on the way. RIP

Here is the onboard video from the run, pictures comin later.
