Default My 3 Seconds of Fame on Horsepower TV

It was about 3 to 4 seconds of Pace Car coverage against the TV shows 69 Camaro. The clip was from the starting line to the 1/8th. The score board had my .029 light up there. I am sure they did not show the complete run since I whoooooop the Camaro.

The show aired Saturday and Sunday on Spike from 11:30 am.
