Unlimited NewsJournal Features Wicks' Record

The June, 2000 issue of the Unlimited NewsJournal featured a cover story on Russ Wicks' world record, titled "A New Benchmark".  The multiple-page article, written by Dick Sanders, touches on the history of the propeller-driven one-mile straightaway record, as well as provides a good insight into Dr. Ken Muscatel's Miss Freei team and the record run itself.
