World Speed Record Set in Dodge Charger: Russ Wicks, who holds World Speed Records of more than 200 miles per hour on both land and water, has set a stock car world record of 244.9 miles per hour, which has been confirmed by Guinness World Records. Wick successfully achieved the record on Tuesday, October 9 at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Northwestern Utah while driving a 2007 Dodge Charger built to NASCAR specifications. The new mark shatters Wicks´ previous stock car world speed record of 222 miles per hour. Wicks´ vehicle was developed with the backing of the Dodge Motorsports Engineering Group and Arrington Engines.(Dodge Motorsports PR)(10-14-2007)

So that means it is a fake plastic body over a standard chassis.

No thanks, I can't claim a record for a Charger on that one.

Why is this a big deal? Can't any SRT8 Charger do that speed (and then some) in a straight-away?

<steps on soapbox>

Everybody already knows that NASCAR cars are not showroom stock. NASCAR cars are not "fake", they are real cars. They are not showroom stock, but what race car is anymore?

I'm so tired of hearing that NASCAR cars are not REAL cars.

NASCAR drivers are also REAL athletes.

<quickly steps back on>
And they aren't plastic bodies.

Nice Duster

Nice looking Duster. Love those cars. My first Mopar was a 71 Dodge Demon with a 340. Back in those days, bad to the bone for a stock small block.
