Great footage of Skeets winning in about 2:08.5

Surreal to see Dave Cowens lumbering down the final straight in 2:26. (If there had been a loose ball tossed in front of him, he would have won.)

Most of them should have been DQed for running inside the lane 1 line.

Anyone else notice how some of them are cutting the corner on the last straight. Without a proper curb, they were supposed to put cones on the inside border

To be more precise, I should have said 1:31 to 1:32, but I won't argue with 0:00 - 0:15.

They'd have to go 6 yards farther on that track for a full half mile. Tack about 1.2 seconds onto their times.

The 1:30 rack is quite nice.
