Post PRD Senior Open... The distance between 3rd and 4th?...
According to MyLaps, Lloyd Mack beat Dan Rivera to the finish line by 0.015 seconds to take the 3rd place trophy. Let's assume Dan was traveling at 55mph during that 15/1000 of a second... how many inches behind Lloyd did he finish? :sh

Well.... if Dan was doing 55mph that is 968 inches per second, and to get feet per second divide by 12 giving you 80.66 fps multiply by .015 seconds this gives you 1.21 feet in .015 seconds or approximately 14 inches. So Dan was 14 inches behind Lloyd :D

Yup, it was a wee bit more than a bumper. Oh so close. Us four were smokin'

If Llyod had not been wise enough to interrupt my breaking zone, I may have squeezed it out. Fortunately for him, he is a very experienced driver. He deserved P3!
