Default Fastest Super Gas Speed?

I need to settle a pub bet, in the early 80's when TRW was promoting its perfect .400/9.90 bonus contingency, was there a non competitive Pro-stocker that was equipped with an auto and stop that run high 180's? From memory it only did 1 meeting. Anyone remember it?

Division 3's Donnie Peden regularly ran over 185, once I believe he ran 189 at 9.90.

Mike Manners went 9.90 @ 205 this year at Norwalk in Super Gas. It was a Pro Mod older vette.

I ran his Super Comp car which ONLY ran 8.88 @ 219 mph. That is also the fastest Super Comp car.

He bought that Vette from a close friend of mine, Frankie Taylor. He had bought the Firebird before that from Frankie also. Mike is an outstanding person. Meet him a few years ago at HRP just b/c at the time, he had a truck like mine. Those are some goofy (haha) charactor's that are on his crew.


I think in Houston last year, he went over 220 at 8.93. Can't remember that far back. He was on the stop for 3.1 seconds, at least that's what he told me.

Its easy to have a fast car and hit the number every few but winning a national event running 180 is a diff story.

Troy Coughlin won indy running 180 and i think hes the fastest to date and to boot it was indy so it was no joke of a field
