    What's New

    "Tonya Harding has been at the Bonneville Salt Flats this past week, for Speed Week. She wasn't there as a spectator, but as a driver, competing in the Vintage Gas Coup Class.

    On Monday, Tonya did a qualifying run, of 79.1 mph. On Tuesday, she did a second run, at 83.618 mph, establishing a record of 81.37 mph, from the two runs. She is the first person to drive a 1931 vintage gas coup on the Salt Flats, to establish a land speed record. Also, this is the first time that a vintage gas coup has competed at a SCTA-BNI sanctioned event.

    The car, named Licket-Split, is owned by Yacolt WA resident Pete Richardson. It's a 1931, stock body Model A coup, powered by a 1932 4 cylinder flathead, with few modifications.

    Once again, Tonya Harding is in the record books for being the first to accomplish something no one else has done. She is also the first American woman to successfully perform the very difficult triple axel during figure skating competitions."

    You know whats weird? i always kind of liked her, she was
    really funny on that The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest!
    show about people that have accidents, and get caught on tape doing
    stupid things.

    Thats strange coincidence, the girl she attacked back
    in the Olympics Nancy Kerrigan is in the news today, her brother
    killed her dad, i kid you not.

    I saw clips of that honeymoon tape. She has some of the worst breasts on a woman.

    It is interesting that Tonya and Nancy are in the news again today, but for different reasons than in 1994.

    She shows so little class. She's lives in my county and over the years she in some trouble or another. I think every one rolls their eyes when she's in the paper here. DUI, not paying her rent and the landlord eviction process, blah blah blah.
