So this coverage wasn't broadcast live but it's pretty amazing to think it's 30 years old and they had an Air to Ground chit-chat with the IRONMAN. Awesome TV coverage!

Watching Ragland change a flat, brings me back to the Fireworks...like 90 or 91? Walker gets a flat in front of us. We are near Slash X on that flat fast section. We run over, start to unload the spare and look for the jack on the rack. .no jack...co dawg gets out gestures to us that he has this, lowers the air jack (Kuster?) and the whole side lifts...we were in awe...and jealous too.
Awesome.
I miss the Fireworks...lots of memories there.

Cool stuff.
