jessie got like 10.5 sec in the quarter around 130mph. They still believe it will go 9 if the traction was better.

G. Bergs son was on the show too.

in the site, it says the motor locked up due to it being overreved, but it was because the main bearing was partially blocking the oil hole. They rebuilt the motor in less then 7 hours.

Jessie got a ticket for driving a non registered and uninsured vehicle to a bug show. The cop came close to impounding the vehicle too.
