Indy Airstrip Attack – Crazy Wing Vette Goes 235 MPH

November 3rd, 2018

Greetings racing fans and speed enthusiasts! Welcome to Marion, Indiana and the Shift S3ctor Indy Airstrip Attack Half-Mile. On hand are such giants as English Racing, Underground Racing, Dallas Performance, and Top Speed Motorsports; as well as some smaller teams and individuals. Today’s contest is all about top speed and these guys can really make it.

Just when you thought you’d seen everything, you get out of the car to see a Honda Insight (hybrid) stroll through the half-mile with a top speed of 163 mph. The tiny car now has a K20 gasoline engine and a small turbocharger (instead of the hybrid power plant/s) but still looks bone stock. It still gets over 40 mpg, too. Pretty funny!

On the other end of the spectrum, Underground Racing rolls out their World Record holding Lamborghini Huracan Performante (Yellow). The car has gone as fast as 259 mph and the UR crew would love to exceed that mark today.

There is a black Dodge Viper and a red Chevrolet Corvette (with a massive wing) doing battle for the top speed rear-wheel drive World Record. These guys are in it to win it and they are back-and-forth all weekend around the 230 mph range.

Check out the rest of the action.
