When they say "Highway" speeds what do they mean?

It would be a shame to hit that superspeedway and not be able to get out of third gear.

I got a $330 speeding ticket and I didn't even get out of third gear!

The track insurance will not allow our street cars on the speedway to drive as fast as we want to. The safety crew will be pacing the track at about 90 MPH (highway speeds). They also know we have hot rods and sports cars that want to run. They will allow us to run faster than the pace speed as long as we are safe about it (but not officially). No tail gating, no holding back, stopping, or slowing way down on the speedway, and definitely no passing.

I got to use all 5 gears in my 72.

If you don't have a supercharger or turbocharger, you will wish you did coming out of turn 2. The back stretch is over a mile long and about 100 yards wide.

You will ahve a grin on your face when you come off the track. 5 laps go y WAY too fast!
