At Bonneville Speedweek 2011, George Poteet captained his Bonneville Blown Fuel Streamliner aka the Speed Demon and set a new speed record of 390.709mph. His speed crushed the previous record of 366.043mph.

Poteet also took the Hot Rod Magazine trophy for the fastest measured mile, hitting 426mph. The Speed Demon packs a 347 cubic-inch V8 motor coupled with 2 Turbonetics "Demon" turbochargers that can put out over 2,200hp.
