Incredible, congratulations Ed.  
I'm assuming the black Road Runner. Will it be retired from FAST duty now that it's into the 10's?

Way to go, Ed.  That had to be a very satisfying pass.  Was he able to make a few consecutive 10 sec passes?  What a way to represent the lift-off crowd.

I'm thinking there's a Hemi or two out there that Ed would like to beat before he retires it?

Dave the car will be retired this year as soon as the Maxie has the bugs worked out. I am not sure if I will start to restore it right away or wait to see if it needs to be called back to duty.  
 
You know the car as been a race car a lot longer then it's been a show car!  Smiley
