Who holds that title now?

It depends on your definition of "World's Fastest".

There's the Worlds Fastest High-Banked 1/4 mile oval;

Anderson, Indiana

World's Fastest 1/4 mile oval;

Slinger Superspeedway - Slinger, WI

There's the World's Fastest Dirt Track.

Volunteer Speedway - Bulls Gap, Tennessee

And of course the World's Fastest Speedway;

Bonneville Salt Flats

World's fastest Superspeedway;

Talladega, AL

How about the World's Fastest Half-Mile Circle Track?

Bristol Motor Speedway

The list goes on...

Which track were you referring to?

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

See a list of my real mods and pictures of my car HERE. The true performance of my car was made possible by the Carolinas Crew Chief, RobertP at Rob's Tire & Auto

Ralph, you mean the Intimidator? did I spell that right?

I went to Talladega in October of 2000, saw Dale win his last race.

Cool Joe I was at Daytona when he lost his life, I lived in Nc and not far away at all from RCR Met Dale many times was a very nice and down to earth man. I felt like I lost a true friend
