June's CS of the month Follow Up Report

Well i made it out to California Dragway in Fontana this weekend to race the mustang...and i set new records!

Made 5 passes in 110 degree plus heat and my times and speeds were:

12.546 at 108.38mph with a 60' of 1.832
12.498 at 109.79mph with a 60' of 1.853
12.620 at 108.64mph with a 60' of 1.894
12.546 at 109.34mph with a 60' of 1.867
12.653 at 107.90mph with a 60' of 1.883

Track elevation is approximately 1120ft.

So my second pass is my new best, 12.498 at 109.79mph and this was accomplished at an extremely high temperature, which means maybe the mustang can pull in the 12.30's during the winter at 110mph plus!

Attached is a picture of my best timeslip and actual pictures of the display board and the mustang passing down the track and some Burnout Clouds!

Fred Goodell (Shelby's Chief Engineer 1966-70) would be proud of you, David!

Send the same photos, and a copy of the timeslips to me at my P.O. Box. I want to put it into the book.

If Hollywood decides to remake this:

... then my vote would be to use David and his CS ...
