You just won this thread.

Only thing better is if Dan Gurney posted and Brock Yates came back from beyond!

Cool. That Caddy must have been flying!

I dont know if it is true, but I hear that some of the fastest times come after a hard rain (but once the track is dry) -- it cleans off the dust and dirt and you get better grip. What do you find to be the best track conditions for a fast lap? Cool air obviously helps the engine but what conditions are better for grip and overall great lap times? What temps?Cool surface or hot surface? Sunny or cloudy? Morning or afternoon? I'd be curious to know what conditions to look for when seeking a hot lap time.

The conditions you should look for a fast lap are whatever Mother Nature gives you lol. Gotta Dance with the girl that brung ya. Anyone who tells you a track that has just been rained on is going to be fast isn't very fast. Yes it can wash away dirt and marbles but more importantly it washes off rubber too. A hot track that's not too hot with lots of matching rubber down on a cooler day with low humidity is ideal.

It did fly. The Caddy's speedo was resting on the 120 peg the entire race, including a hailstorm when we passed the Ferrari. Our 36:56 time included 6 police stops, 2 at gunpoint, and our average speed, excluding those stops, was higher than the Ferrari's despite Gurney bringing the Daytona up to 175 mph to seal the win.
