Speed Demon Status Report
09/15/2014
18:05:20 ET
On the first run on the year on 9/12, Speed Demon got a little sideways and rolled several times near the 3-mile mark on the course. [This run was as part of what was supposed to be Mike Cook's Shootout, but was changed to a test and tune session with no official times due to standing water at the end of the long course and surface issues near the beginning.]

George walked away from the car and was taken by ambulance to Salt Lake City for observation. The data loggers showed the crash happened near 370 mph and the strength and integrity of the car/frame was simply amazing, given the forces the car saw during the crash. Everyone who participated in designing, fabricating and maintaining the car over the years can be proud of the fact that George walked away with only bumps and bruises.

George was grateful to everyone who has worked on the car over the years. The outpouring of support an concern was truly overwhelming. George is looking forward to bringing Speed Demon back to set new records in 2015.

UPDATE Thursday August 15th, 2013: 9:41 am Mountain Time  SPEED DEMON JUST RAN436 MILES PER HOUR IN THE 5TH MILE WITH AN EXIT SPEED OF 448 MPH!  With that run, the team will surely return to impound and do routine maintenance on the car and take the rest of the day off to prepare for a record return run tomorrow morning, if the engine is one piece. If not, they would only be allowed 4 hours of repair time today in impound and one hour in the morning. We will keep you posted with more as we get it.

Do Not Unwrap Till After “SPEED WEEK”
07/19/2013
Advanced Alloy Shields™ custom manufactures reusable hard cover thermal insulation systems that are molded to fit directly over hot engine components, up to 3000° F. (1649° C.). Since 1972, they have worked with military and aerospace industries and are one of the most qualified companies for extreme heat control.

You will see Turbo Insulation Shields on nearly all professional race cars with turbocharged engines. Why? Because they help to increase engine performance and protect against the damaging effects of radiant heat.

Exhaust gasses power the turbo spindle; the higher the performance of the engine, the hotter the exhaust temperatures will be. In fact, if you were to open the engine compartment of any high-performance vehicle after it has been driven hard, you’d see a glowing red exhaust-side turbocharger housing.

To avoid damage and sustain optimum performance, it is important to protect the rest of the engine from the 1600 F°+ temperatures that radiate from the Turbo. Covering the turbo housing will also promote cool air intake that translates to increased horsepower and fire protection!

The Speed Demon Racing Team is honored to have now won 7 Hot Rod Trophies in a row. This is the coveted award given by Hot Rod Magazine for having the highest speed of Speed Week.

This year we got the A/BFS record 423 mph and worked our asses off to get it. It takes so many people to make this happen. It's unfortunate that some of them can't make it out to the salt and see the benefits of their work. But we know they were with us in spirit. We were honored to have Craig Breedlove and Al Teague spend time with us this week.

Since 2009, George Poteet and his team have taken the HOT ROD trophy for the fastest single flying mile of Speed Week. The first five of those wins were in the Poteet & Main Speed Demon, and the latest win is in the all-new Speed Demon team streamliner. The new car uses the same engines built by Kenny Duttweiler, but it’s lighter, with less drag and better aero than before. Co-Crew Chief Steve Watt also cooked up some new tricks to make wrenching between runs easier than before.

Nicked a head gasket. Engine undamaged and repairs were quickly accomplished by the Demon crew. Car is ready to run again. It currently has the top speed of the meet at 442 MPH which will claim the Hot Rod Trophy for a another year. If nobody tops that speed on Thursday the Demon will not run again until the Shootout next month. On that last run the team were still doing a bit of research with yarn tufts taped to the tail. Video and still shots by photographers provided insight to air movement across the tail and the rear bodywork. Note one of the shots showing more of the car and the exhaust exiting ahead of and on either side of the tail. Note position of the skirt ahead of the rear wheels indicating no lift at speed.

The wing closeup is a shot of the yarn tufts on the Speed Demon tail at somewhere around 400 mph.

Tuesday Recap
08/17/2016
14:08:23 ET
406 MPH at the 4 Mile when George heard a pop and shut it down. Fuel flow problem caused some damage so the 388ci engine went into the trailer and the 368ci bullet was installed for tomorrow. Car was 12.5 mph faster to the 3 mile than any other previous run. This was the car's fastest ever speed at the 4 mile so it was on a mission until the fuel problem occurred. Team thrashed that engine change in only a couple hours.



Lost the engine at 3.5 miles. Still ran 406mph at the 4 mile. Car was 12.5 mph faster to the 3 mile than any other previous run. New engine is ready for the morning run

Why Is The Speed Demon So Damned Fast?

08/03/2016
12:50:21 ET
What makes George Poteet’s awesome Speed Demon streamliner consistently able to crack off seemingly effortless 400 mph plus runs on the Bonneville salt flats?  Among the contributing factors for the car’s stunning performance its sleek aerodynamic profile, traction control and Poteet’s nerves-of-steel driving skills rank high on the list. But the primary component of the Demon’s potent high-velocity formula is a nasty trio of highly boosted twin turbocharged small block Chevy V8s ensuring that the original generation one small block Chevy is still the fastest V8 engine on the planet.

More Details
09/08/2015
21:43:41 ET
Can you spot what's different about the new Speed Demon? A lot of it is under the skin, but these pictures show some significant changes. The car is 830 pounds lighter at 4,128 lbs. with George and all fluids ion board. Imagine what that's worth. All heavy components have been moved as low as possible in the car and the engine is set forward 10 inches to achieve 64% weight on the rear tires. Adding 50 pounds in the nose box changes it to 63%. The air scoop was found to be ineffective with minimal pressure so it is replaced with direct oval shaped side inlets just ahead of the turbo inlets. There is a slight positive pressure on the body at that point. Losing the air scoop helps make the tail more effective too. The other changes include new canopy mods flush mounted exhaust stacks and the lower body sweeps much farther back past the wheels. _John Baechtel photos

Building the World’s Fastest Car. Again
Hot Rod
08/08/2015
12:16:13 ET
The Poteet & Main Speed Demon streamliner holds the title of the world’s fastest wheel-driven car, taking the HOT ROD trophy for the fastest flying mile for five consecutive years at Bonneville’s Speed Week with current records in the SCTA’s Blown Fuel Streamliner class as fast as 437 mph. Even more impressive is that it accomplished that speed with a single, twin-turbocharged small-block V8 displacing 368 ci. After a crash in September 2014, the team decided it was time for a new chassis and a whole new build that would benefit from their years of experience and 30 passes at more than 400 mph. Speed Demon Racing Team members Steve Watt, Aron Cranford, Danny Drinan, Dave Main, Ron Main, James Diviak, Scott Lacy, Tommy Horn, Joe Galati, and driver George Poteet allowed us to take a look at some of the new tricks to make their land-speed racing endeavor even more successful as the new streamliner—now known simply as Speed Demon—comes together.

Got word couple weeks past that George Poteet got the ride of his life in the Ron Main and Poteet Speed Demon ultra-speed demon. You know, just your average 400 mph grocery getter. As I got the word, driver George was in the third timed mile at Bonneville when the car got in a hiccup and ended up removing the body panels at well over 300 mph.

 


Speed Demon Sponsors

Every year, we begin working immediately after the last run to improve the car based on what we have learned. Without the tireless efforts and material support of these sponsors, we would not be able to go out each year with the prospect of bettering our speeds from the previous year.

You can show your appreciation to our sponsors by buying and using their ”Speed Demon tested and appoved“ products in your machine.

Save the Salt!
Save the Bonneville Salt Flats

The Speed Demon team is working to save the Bonneville Salt Flats, which are being depleted each year and are dangerously thin in spots. We have created this program to help with the fundraising.

Gold Level Sponsor

For a $3,000.00 donation a donor will receive the Gold Level Award. The streamliner is hand cast in metal, hand polished, finished and electroplated in real “24 Karat gold.” There is no resin used in this high quality award. These are the real thing. Worthy of a trophy collectors case.

Silver and Bronze Level Sponsors

Donations can also be made at the $2,000 Silver Level and receive the hand cast streamliner in silver. Or, the $1,000 Bronze Level and the receive the hand cast streamliner in Bronze.

Please contact me directly regarding your sponsorship via email at rmain@canogarebar.com or +1 (818) 998-7848.

Best regards,

Ron Main
