Your HP computed from your vehicle MPH is 602.45 rear wheel HP and 669.39 flywheel HP.

Is that 8.8 in the 1/8 or what? Didn't look like a 1/4 mile pass.

if you listen right after the camera zooms in on the clock, it's definitely a 1/4 mile pass. the track color changes right at the clock but you can still hear the cars running well pass that.

It certainly seemed like he had plenty of time to shut it down when it started torque-steering heavily to starboard. Guess he thought he could save it.
