Danny Thompson (Mickeys son) breaks world speed record
« on: August 12, 2018, 09:01:36 PM »
It's speed week at the Bonneville salt flats.  Danny now holds the world record for piston driven using an updated (to conform to modern regulations) version of Mickeys 1968 streamliner "Challenger 2" . Ran 446.6 MPH Sat and backed it up with an even better return run of 450.9 today for a 448.737 average. Thats haulin!!!

Mickey was a Pontiac guy before many of us were even born. I've run my bird at a couple of 1 mile Land Speed Races and hope to run Bonneville one day. I know there isn't a lot of LSR guys on this forum but thought some of you might be might be interested.
