    The weather was almost perfect both Saturday and Sunday and there were over a thousand spectators on site at the event over the two-day wannaGOFAST Texas ½ Mile in Sulphur Springs, Texas.  Blake Hutchinson and his wannaGOFAST team did an outstanding job logistically and with the overall management of the event.
     
    Our two top competitors for the week-end were V-Club member Brandon Barr who reset the 1/2 Mile world record for Cadillac V's with a pass of 185.18 mph and V-Club President Mike Franks who hit 183.97 mph.   Brandon had recently reset the Texas Mile record by hitting a trap speed of 216.2 in Beeville Texas in October.  Congratulations to both members for breaking last year's record of 182.3 mph set by V-Club member and sponsor Kurt Decker.
     
    Overall, the event was very successful. Cadillac Racing from Detroit brought down their exhibition trailer which included a 2017 ATS-V and CTS-V and also Johnny O’Connell’s ATS-VR race car. Both Johnny O’Connell and Michael Cooper attended the event, signed autographs and joined the V-Club for dinner at Bodacious BBQ on Saturday evening along with 95 other V-Club members and guests.  The V-Club had 38 registered to compete in the event.
