                    i believe he lost control one time running over 500mph.
                    and left 'skidmarks' for something like 6 miles.....
                    RIP, he was an inovator and had nads of steel
                    for sure.

                        His GREATEST Accomplishment was to LIVE a Full Live,
                        and Tell his Grand Kids of the Front Seat View of Going 1 Mile per Second in a car !!!
