The goal was to get him into the 3 club, which requires a two way average speed over 300 mph that is faster than the current record in the class you are racing. We built the car in less than a year and Jack got in the 3 club the second season on the salt. using a naturally aspirated 305 cu/in chevy. It's set several other streamliner records with various flatheads, I'm not sure how many records it currently holds.
