The Boss 302's time of 3:02 was on the 4.1 mile course, so I'd really like to know which course the sub 3 minute 1LE run was made on. If it was the full course, a sub 3 run is not that impressive as many cars commonly run mid-to-low 2's on the Full Course.
The way it's being talked up, I sure hope it is the Grand West and not the Full configuration.
Yeah I'd like to know this too, I'm remaining skeptical until the car is actually seen running, I'm not gonna believe some words someone typed on the internet.... Sub three minutes could be any where from 2:59.00-2:59.99 for all we know until it is actually shown to us.
