Woody Woodruff Helps People that "Wanna Go Fast"

When I was ten years old, I thought Gary Gabelich was the coolest guy on earth.  His car, the “Blue Flame”, set a new land speed record at over 622mph, besting a record that was set and had been held for years by Craig Breedlove (who I also thought was pretty cool).  A couple of years later, my uncle introduced our family to a new friend of his, Mike Mitchell, the self-proclaimed “World’s Fastest Hippie”, a drag racer from the San Francisco area.  The day they parked his funny car out in front of our house made us the envy of the neighborhood.

WoodruffeI don’t know how long David “Woody” Woodruff has been interested in speed records, but I do know that he loves to talk about it.  And people listen.  Woody’s “Project BUB” session at SolidWorks World 2010 stands as the 5th highest rated session ever, and his 5-year overall average ranks him as the #1 all-time presenter at SolidWorks World.

This years session “The Scoop on Scoops”, takes a look at how SolidWorks and SolidWorks Flow Simulation helped design and optimize hood scoops for two hotrods competing at the Bonneville salt flats in Utah.  If you are a fan of racing, this is a must see session.

My official title is Senior User Advocacy & SolidWorks User Groups - but most people just call me "The User Group Guy". I've been a SolidWorks user since 1997, and was one of the founding members of the SWUGN Committee. Since starting the Central Texas SolidWorks User Group in 1999, my career path has led me to DS SolidWorks and a dream job supporting the SolidWorks User Group Network worldwide.
