Speed Demon wins Hot Rod Trophy #6
If you weren't following the news from Bonneville this year, the Speed Demon Racing Team won the Hot Rod Trophy for the 6th straight year. This was a significant milestone for several reasons. First, this was the debut of the completely redesigned and rebuilt Speed Demon Streamliner. It was also the first time Speedweek had been run in three years, after rain left the course covered in water for two straight years.
The video below is from one of the runs on Wednesday and will give you some idea of what it's like to go over 400 mph. This Speedweek allowed George to add several runs over 400mph - his total of 37 is more than anyone else in world.

ARP Shows HOT ROD How a Bolt is Made
HotRod.com
Brandan Gillogly on July 6, 2015
Automotive Racing Products, better known as ARP (http://arp-bolts.com/), has made a reputation in the automotive industry for producing high-strength, high-quality studs, bolts, nuts, and just about every other fastener one might need to assemble an engine. ARP has several facilities in and around Ventura, California, where spools of steel wire are cut, heated, hammered, and rolled to make fasteners that far exceed the typical Grade 8 bolt you’ll find at your local hardware store. In high-performance applications where engines and components are taxed far beyond what the factory ever had in mind, having a fastener that applies the proper clamping load becomes even more critical. Because of the company’s expertise, ARP is contracted to build fasteners for the most demanding motorsports in the world as well as aerospace applications. We toured a couple of its facilities to see the manufacturing process from raw material to packaging.

“It’s not meant to be a high-winding, high-strung engine,” says Evan Uerkwitz, an engine builder at Goodwin. “It originally was a clean-sheet design set up for large tractor pulling. We saw a niche in the market to change the product and use it...
