    Great pic too.
    John Laing "The sole condition which is required in order to succeed in centralizing the supreme power in a democratic community, is to love equality, or to get men to believe you love it. Thus the science of despotism, which was once so complex is simplified, and reduced . . . . to a single principle." -- Alexis de Tocqueville "One of the methods used by statists to destroy capitalism consists in establishing controls that tie a given industry hand and foot, making it unable to solve its problems, then declaring that freedom has failed and stronger controls are necessary." --Ayn Rand "To evolve, you don't need a Constitution. All you need is a legislature and a ballot box . . . . things will evolve as much as you want. All of these changes can come about democratically; you don't need a Constitution to do that and it's not the function of a Constitution to do that." -- Justice Antonin Scalia

    Too bad they didn't mention Mike's previous run that was too fast for the Street Machine Eliminator class: 9.863 @143.16!

    I thought it was odd they didn't mention it. But then realized when was the last time a magazine actually fact checked anything in print?

    I guess because I couldn't turn in that slip it didn't make the official record. The captions were probably put together by sifting through photographs and matching car numbers to our entry forms, official slips and results. I got the video, I am happy with that lol
