    Well besides some fast and furious trapshooting this summer, there are also some fast and furious cars running this summer.

    Here's a summer teaser. Last week, this pictured car ran and ran it did on 300 cubic inches of turbocharged Chevy V-8. Here are the teasing questions:

    1. Name the car.

    2. Where was it run?

    3. About how fast did it go and set a new record?

    4. Bonus points: Name the driver.

    I got to watch it go no telling how fast last Thursday at the 3.5 mile mark.

    426 mph and yes new record

    I don't remember the driver's name. He's out of Tennessee and has made more 400 mph runs than anyone.

    Amazing how they did it with one engine, after the Summers Bros. record, set with 4 hemi's stood for so many years.
