Silver Bullet
Exhibition Class

Removing himself from his own performance truck to pilot last year's winning '55 F-100, Mike Sullivan put on quite a show with a sub-two-minute road course time. Pushing the truck hard around the orange cones in the slalom, Mike bested last year's Silver Bullet time by .10 seconds, which is a dramatic improvement. The truck ran .07 seconds slower in the quarter-mile, showing impressive consistency after a year's worth of racing all across the country. Funny how much fun beating on someone else's truck can be. The Silver Bullet still proved formidable in each competition, and it also proved that in the hands of a solid driver, it could go fast no matter what.
