Speed on this run is 546 ( plus a fraction) miles per hour and recorded on camera number 747. At this great speed, the images are blurred and features mostly indistinguishable until the car slows down in a long coast to stop.
Another motion picture camera and photographer is seen near the end of run. Bright points of reflected sunlight appear on front and top of car. The roadbed reflects images during the filming.
