Re: Screw the 1/4 mile, who wants to run the mile?!

Check out some of the events out West. The Sandhills Open Road Event does a 1 mile shootout every year. The current speed to beat is 200.00mph, which was done by a TT Viper. That event is at about 2500' elevation, so that makes it a bit tougher.

The Silver State Classic Challenge also has both a 1/2 mile and 1 mile shootout event. This event is held just outside of Ely, NV, with an altitude of about 6200'. Currently, a Viper also holds their 1 mile shootout record at 183mph.

Lee - is a nutcase, plain and simple. For a guy to have had 30+ concussions and still get back on a bike, you know he's mental. But he's a cool guy. My dad's turbo Blackbird makes 260rwhp and it's a handful to ride on hi-boost. Fun though. I've seen right at 200mph with it a few times.

I think we might see some faster 1/2mile and 1mile times in the coming year out here though.
