Bonneville Salt Flats

I found this ticket. Wondering if anyone knows who this belongs too. I don't know if it's fake or real. Can anyone authenticate it? Hope I'm in the right second.

Probably Jerry Strode ~ Gaston, Oregon. Where did you find the timeslip?

There's a thread about him over at SCCoA.

I found the info below here after a brief search.

"Jerry Strode deploys the chute on his Thunderbird race car during the first day of the 63rd annual Bonneville SpeedWeek on the Bonneville Salt Flats outside Wendover, Utah, August 13, 2011. Hundreds of drag race cars will attempt to set land speed records during the course of the week. REUTERS/Jim Urquhart "



... Also from 2011 ...



Here's one from 2010 when he went 264.427 MPH.


Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

See a list of my real mods and pictures of my car HERE. The true performance of my car was made possible by the Carolinas Crew Chief, RobertP at Rob's Tire & Auto

There's a pretty entertaining movie about an old man who dreamt his whole life about racing at Bonneville.
