By David Uhler - Express-News

A retired San Antonio police officer broke a world speed record last week at the Bonneville saltflats.

Then his brother got behind the wheel a couple of days later and broke it again.
Russell Duffin, 63, now is the owner of the record in Unblown Grand Touring Sports with a speed of 230.545.

A 1962 graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School, Duffin is the owner of Duffin Auto Service, an engine rebuilding shop near San Antonio International Airport.
