One Mile Drag Race

Anyone ever been to a one mile drag? I'm considering going out to see what speeds I can hit. I'm too cautious on the street to ever do it anywhere else.

Close enough to me that I'd consider doing it.

1 Mile runs are getting more popular and are quite telling.

Recently Top Gear did an episode where they had the SRT-8 Challenger, CTS-V and ZR1 at the Salt Flats. Granted there will be some variation but not a whole lot. The stock/bolt on GTOs would be somewhere around 150-155mph just like the SRT-8s.

SRT-8 150mph
CTS-V (SCd) 160mph
ZR1 170mph

Another popular measurement is 60-130mph with the Vbox which I wrote an article about. Check it out.
