Was just reading an article about this race, there was a state trooper at the track with a radar gun, he clocked Sammy Swindell at 185 mph   :-\

I heard about the radar gun the other day when they were talking about bristol dirt on a video I watched. It was insane how fast they were flying around that place.

NASCAR record is about 14.5 seconds, on dirt the Sprints were about 13.2 seconds, even more insane the Extreme Sprint series raced winged sprints on the concrete, laps were about 12.7 seconds
