    Since there are many trapshooters/shotgunners here who know and appreciate fast cars besides great shotguns, and they sure educate me with their knowledge, I thought I'd post: Picture of the cockpit of a very contemporary LSR car. Here are a Six teaser questions: 1. Name of Car? 2. Engine builder/tuner? 3. Type of engine used? 4. Prior type of engine used that first brought car to fame under a different name? 5. About how fast has this car gone thus far; remember, it only uses one engine! 6. Who is the primary driver?

    ljutic 73 is correct. I'll look for a picture of the driver, George Poteet....and I found the picture, the calm gentleman with the long socks and straw hat. He drives that car well over 425 mph and once at 462 mph on a regular basis during speed weeks!
