Big difference in trap speed in LS3 vs L99?

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...test_data.html

Seems like there is a huge difference in trap speed between the LS3 and L99 (111.0 mph vs. 107.5). There is only a 1.7 mph diff between the auto and stick versions of the V6. Is this a fluke or is the automatic and L99 reduced redline that much big of a drag on top end? Seems like if I remember correctly, past F-Bodies only had maybe a 2 mph difference in trap speed.
