    This is my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking

    Day 4: 2563 laps today with Gabby Chaves taking the top speed in his Handa at 227.961 mph. Tomorrow, they should be over 230 mph because they will get 40 more horsepower with added boost and also start trimming off some of the downforce for qualifying Saturday.

It would be interesting to see what 1996 chasis with a 1973 engine could do around there today-I would think maybe 260-265.
    I'd be happy with a pre IRL rules car and motor or, better, an up date of same, but you are correct - that would be interesting.
