MIS speeds after morning Testing

Track records shattered in NASCAR practice at MIS UPDATES: The Sprint Cup Series qualifying record at Michigan International Speedway has been broken unofficially by several cars already this morning, at a special NASCAR test to acclimatize drivers to the newly repaved oval. Toyota driver #56-Martin Truex Jr. became the first NASCAR driver in MIS history to turn a 200-mph lap when he hit 200.261 this morning. Chevy's #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. was right behind him, at 200.206. Chevy drivers #42-Juan Pablo Montoya (199.440 mph) and #29-Kevin Harvick (199.236 mph) also flirted with the 200-mph threshold. #18-Kyle Busch went 194.789 in his Toyota and #24-Jeff Gordon 194.610 in another Chevrolet. The old track record was 194.232, set by Ryan Newman in a Dodge in 2005.(Detroit Free Press)


I think I'm going to tell Smoke to be safe on Sunday when my parade lap is done. 217 mph while entering Turn 1. This race is gonna be a nail biter!! Yikes

Re: MIS speeds after morning Testing

Tony was the fastest car of the whole day, a speed he set in the set test session. Nearly a 202 mph lap. They are hauling the mail. They are going to shatter Ryan Newman's track record.

And this is one of the few tracks JJ hasn't won at. How do I figure THAT into my picks?!? :?
