2010 Mike Cook Shootout,Bonneville Salt Flats Utah.. Pics from the Pits Vol 3.
On Tuesday morning,September 21st,Charles Nearburg took out the "Spirit of Rett",a gas engined streamliner named after his son who died in 2005 of cancer,out for a quick spin on the salt.
He ended up with a 414.316mph Mile Average,not bad for a gas engined car(!!).
I really enjoyed talking with Charles for a bit,I wish I had some more time to talk with him.Rumor has it he`ll be back next year in the BGS class(Blown Gas Streamliner,I know,I know,there`s a hundred jokes in there),so I guess we`re looking at 450-500 mph speeds.
