      The Flash Duster looks "poppy red" in that video. ....can't wait to get it out of storage. If anyone on the east side of the Mississippi has a good size event they would like to see this race car....and Butch at, have the promoter contact me. We are up for grabs!

        FYI....Butch and the Direct Connection Hemi Duster will be at the NHRA Summit Nationals / Norwalk, OH in a couple of weeks (June 24 thru 27th). Look for us along with the Joe Pappas and the Motown Missile under the west side / spectator grandstand for the entire event.

        Please stop by and say HI.

              I have a great video on my phone taken moments before this picture was taken....car running with Butch at the wheel. Maybe I can figure out how to move it from my phone to here.

                      Judging from his previous projects, it should be done in about two weeks.

                        The concept has been on the cocktail napkin (drawing board) in various forms for about 5 years......HDK is fully committed and Mr Direct Connection / Butch and I are attempting to get some "Direct" support.

                        uploading the Summit Nationals / Butch Leal video on U-tube as I type
                        Thanks for the guidance,
                        Denny

                                nicknamed "headbanger bars" . They are the trademark of a Ron Butler built car. Butler was all about triangulation in his builds.
