The 2011 Sandhills Open Road Challenge is in the books.  Last years runners Bob "Rowdy" Radefeld and Bud "7-Banger" Hower worked valiantly to get their cars to the race.  Unfortunatley neither of them ran.  Even so, they had convinced another Pantera team to come out.  Mark Skwarek and Jim Wallace.

Bud's new engine wasn't performing quite to his expectations, so rather than chance a blown engine on the way there or on course, Bud decided against running and instead became support for those who did.  Bob took his Pantera there, but at the last minute (or actually the day before), his ignition went south for the summer.  Not being able to repair it in time, Team Pantera Racing was down two Panteras.  At least a third was still in the running.

Mark Skwarek, in his nicely prepared orange and black pantera took on the event and finished 9th in the 110 mph class at +43.496 seconds.  Another good time had in Arnold Nebraska by both Mark and his navigator, Jim Wallace.

A big Thank You from Team Pantera Racing for upholding the team spirit, competing well and having a good time.
