Most drivers out there on road have an idea of what “fast” is, but very few actually get to experience it. To some 80 mph is fast, to others it’s 120 mph, and yet to others the notion of going fast doesn’t come into the equation until you top 200 mph. I’ve clicked off some passes at just under 190 and I can tell you from experience that this is bookin’. The guys who participate in the event known as the “Texas Mile” are, in my opinion, in a league all their own. Danger is an inherent factor when trying to achieve extreme speed. You’re taking a risk and by doing so, putting your life in danger. The payoff is an adrenaline rush like no other and a massive sense of accomplishment with the downside being that it can take your life. This past Saturday on October 23rd, a Twin-Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo clocked in a run of just under 240 mph, then suddenly, upon deployment of its safety parachute, veered to the right only coming to a stop after a horrific crash. Thankfully, due to the safety measures in place inside the car, the driver walked away. Speed is an amazing sensation that cannot be duplicated, just remember if you’re not careful that things can go south very quickly.
