Persistence sometimes does pay off. Tom from DAPA got permission for me to ride with Floyd during a break in the action. Floyd's car is throttle-stopped to run in the 12s; nice problem to have. I eagerly hopped into the passenger seat as soon as the opportunity arose, and Floyd treated me to an all too brief display of the LeMan's performance. Impressive. Forcing myself back into the roll of photographer I grudgingly climbed into the back seat to get better pictures for you. I hope you appreciate my sacrifice.

We rumbled under the deserted tower and staged. Floyd if you won't tell how fast we went I won't! How many of you would trade places with me that day? Here's digital proof that on Sunday June 10, 2001 I rode with Floyd Hand...
