We did get a decent second run in on the first day.  We made another 380 mph pass but the boost in the car is not going up as high as we need in the last mile. We went to impound just to look over the car but we did not take the speed even though it qualifies for a record return run. We needed to save the tires we had for a 400 mph pass. We had all day Tuesday to look at that issue and fix it as there was no racing that day because of a wet track. Rains came in heavy again Wednesday night and flooded the track for the week. The race was officially canceled after just one day of running.  We had to pack up in a half inch of water.   That is the last possible race this year.  We think we have discovered our boost issue but we will not know for sure unless we pull the motor out of the car and run it on a dyno.   We can only hope that the good track surface was not a once in a 20 year event.
