I have set up a meet and greet with Brian who drove the 190 MPH Insight record attempt two years ago. Here is a video of him accelerating when he lost traction at 190 and rolled.
The event will be at HASPORT (Honda/Acura Sport) here in Phoenix.

For lunch gather by the old Gilbert water tower across from Joe's BBQ, come into East Valley from the 60 freeway, turn south on Gilbert Rd, go about 3 miles, turn west on Page St towards the tower and go to the parking lot in the back past the tower. There is usually a farmers market on Saturdays so it might be busy but just drive to the last row of the big parking lot and we can gather there and walk to Joes BBQ.

Word don't describe seeing what is left of his car and where they cut him out after it rolled. Brian is a great guy and would love to meet all of us and talk about his shop and cars and the record speed attempt.
I was thinking meet around 11-12 for lunch somewhere and then get to Brian's shop around 1-2pm. After a few hours with him go over to the car show in Scottsdale and fill an isle with Insights.
