We landed somewhere in New Mexico late in the night and on the morning of Day 2 this is what the remaining journey looked like:

Below> location: Tucumcari, NM
We discovered this awesome restored garage which the owner was building to park his car collection.

Driving through the Pan Handle of Texas gave us a chance for some prolonged high speed runs. Oil and coolant temp gauges sat at normal, while we blazed our way through the 97deg ambient late at night.

Many of the central states are going through record breaking heatwaves. This gave us the opportunity to drive the car harder than ever at 114deg ambient temps. The supercharger system is performing seamlessly and we are having a blast on vast long open sections.

End of Day 2
Time: 3am
Location: Springfield, MO
Miles travelled: 1570
Miles left: 1130
Total # of traffic tickets: 0
