Gary Gabelich drives the rocket-powered Blue Flame to an official world land speed record of 622.287 mph (1 001.452 863 km/h) on the dry lake bed of the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The record, the first above 1 000 km/h, stands for nearly 13 years.

I love Gary's story. Nice design, execution.

Be quicker of mind than of tongue.

The world is not limited by your limited experience.
I'm not better than anyone else, and neither are you.
