Roderick Wilde and I created the 100 mph Club a few years ago to
recognize the "drivers" who break 100 mph and to "Freeze Frame" that
moment in history.

We don't change the "100 mph Hour Club" entries once someone breaks
100 mph and makes it into the Club.

Reason being. That first time you hit 100 mph in the quarter mile is
a historical moment. Every driver who breaks 100 mph remembers it
just like any other memorable event that takes place in their life.
So it is designed to capture that moment in History forever. This is
why it's called the Roger Hedlund 100 mph Club.

The Record Page on the other hand continually changes according to
who breaks the record. This is what keeps people building vehicles
and making improvements. It is designed to push the envelope. The 100
mph Club is designed to capture that moment in History and to
recognize the drivers for their skills.

It will loose its appeal and worse yet it's historical significance
if we continually change the times and then it just becomes another
version of the Records page.

The media often references this page when they write stories about
when a driver or owner first broke into the 100's with their vehicles.

Why erase history?

Chip, this is a great idea, similar to the NHRA, are you planning to have a
125, 150, 175, and 200 MPH club? you could name each one after the first
person to reach that goal.

Hey Jim,

You are actually already in the club! You've been in there since we
first created it about 3 years ago.

http://www.nedra.com/125mph_club.html

We divided it into three Clubs - 100, 125 and 150

As of yet, we don't have a 175 mph Club. If someone breaks 175 I'll
put one up.

PS. Don't forget to check out the Speed Channel at 10:30 pm for Shawn
Lawless OJ dragster on "Speed Records"

Hey Chip, that's great, that means I should have the 100mph record from the
run I made at Woodburn Dragstrip on 8-28-99 @ 113.83 mph.
I'm looking forward to seeing my "new record" posted soon.
Thanks for doing such a great job on the NEDRA web site, I know you have
nothing better to do with your spare time.

Sincerely,

Jim Ludiker...........second quickest EV in the world behind Dennis.

PS does the club have quickest E. T. records posted anywhere?

Jim, no disrespect to you or Dennis is intended, but with Bill Dube's
bike world record at 8.168 @ 155.74 mph Killacycle is now the quickest
EV on the planet. You need to change your tag line as follows:

Sincerely,

Jim Ludiker...........third quickest EV in the world behind Bill and Dennis.


or.....


Sincerely,

Jim Ludiker...........second quickest 4-wheeled EV in the world behind Dennis.



See Ya.....John Wayland
