In this episode of the show Larry was able to get a full length feature interview with Jimi Day, President of FM3 Marketing, who gave a full recap of the recent Sand Hills Open Road Challenge event held in Arnold, NE.

Jimi is a regular at nearly all adreneline-junky automotive events around the country, and is (typically) there running the event itself (as part of his business) and getting in on the fun in his ’69 AMX as well.

The Sand Hills event is gaining a solid reputation as the Midwest’s “Silver State Classic” and is really becoming a favorite for the top-speed crowd to attend. A section of highway us shut down for the competitors to run in various speed classes on, and a driver and navigator make their runs against the cruelest competitor of all – the clock! During the interview Jimi gave full coverage of every glorious detail!
