TOP SPEED: This honor goes to Ricky Crossley who went 209.4MPH in a ½ Mile in his 2004 Twin Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo. The current fastest speed record still stands from 2014 held by Cody Whitehead at 224.4MPH.

FASTEST GTR: Mark Johnston takes home the title of fastest GTR at The Houston ½ Mile. He achieved a top speed of 203.3MPH! Congrats to him and his crew at AC Motorsports.

FASTEST MOTORCYCLE: Brian Trennepohl who went 176.9 MPH on his 2007 Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 takes the honor of Fastest Motorcycle of the event. Brian did not beat his own personal best from 2014 of 198.4MPH but he was the fastest motorcycle of the weekend!

FASTEST CAMARO: Chase Dooley achieved a top speed of 196.7MPH in the Snappy Racing Camaro. This breaks their previous record of 178.7MPH in the same car in 2014. Congrats to them for having the official 1/2 Mile Camaro Record and for having the 3rd fastest vehicle at the event.
