On Sunday morning June 22nd, the Mandello Meteor made an early morning pass, clocking a 161.048 mph run and earned her first entry into the SCTA record books. The crew for this special occasion consisted of Jon Ohnstad and the Wonderful Wyatts, Phil, Janett and son Brandon.

Bill Ross and Jon Ohnstad staged near the starting line surveying the track ahead. We had good point standings from May and were amongst the first 25 to get a run in.
