No matter what, it will be fun. Something about going 200 and not getting a ticket is a great endorphin blast....

Mike- You definitely should run it. Measured mile runs are fun. We have done a ton of these in the boats. Quite a rush...

You would have so much fun.

Robert , I hope you go for the record . I agree with it might be short lived but we may be surprised , I mean how many guys are crazy enough to go 200 in a car ?

I found out that there are two 2010 Camaros that have gone somewhere around 201 and 205, but it would still be awesome to get there....

And, I am and I know of at least one other, that will do it as a passenger based on his comments.... Which to me is even crazier, riding with me at 200, hell I wouldn't do it...

You know..... I've had a good life, I'd say a prayer, make sure my insurance was up to date, and hop in with you for a run... But If anything happens do I have to clean up my own mess?

Speedster AND his lovely wife did, and so did PQ, they made it, but we didnt go to 200. And no, if we don't make it well lay the and let someone else clean it up... But, if we do survive it and you poop in my car, then yes you gotta clean it up...

...and it was a GREAT ride !!!! Hey, with the time it took Brandi to get to 110, 200 will happen faster than you think. Just make sure you have a good set of tires, a helmet and a fat suit. That way if Brandi gets crazy, the fat suit will save you...

I have the full racing suit, shoes up, the brain bucket, and the MT drag radials should be good for this, if not, then I'll arrange something by then...and most any suit that fits Sasquatch is a fat suit...
