FASTEST MOTORCYCLE OF THE March 2022 Texas Mile
This honor goes to Josh Barton on his 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa at 223.1MPH. Special shout out to Shane Stubbs at STPI for his contribution to the bike build.
-The famous 300MPH Ford GT made a long-awaited appearance at the event with owner Mark Heidaker, team M2K Motorsports, and driver Sean Kennedy. This car is always a crowd pleaser, it’s beautiful to look at, it’s incredibly fast, and when it’s at the start line you can feel the roar of the engine in your bones! It was the first outing for the car in quite some time, so the team’s only goal was to test the car on the new runway. Sean achieved an impressive 205MPH in the 1/2 mile which was the fastest 1/2-mile speed of the weekend.
-Lee Novikoff in his 1967 Mustang Fastback — a true VIN numbered Eleanor is a fan favorite on TheTexasMile Facebook with over 231K fans watching the video post.
-Eddie Presnull continues to push the envelope and beat his own previous speed record with an impressive top speed of 238MPH in his Ford Mustang GT500, making him the 2nd fastest vehicle of the weekend.

-Sam Uthman took the top spot (again) as the fastest SUV of the weekend with a top speed of 186.7MPH in his 2019 Jeep TrackHawk

MOST RUNS OF THE March 2022 Texas Mile
Charles Herber takes the top spot for the most track time of the weekend completing a total of 20 runs in his Shelby GT350 Fastback, his top speed was 167.8MPH.
As always cool things happened and if you weren’t there in person, you really missed out, but that’s okay cause there is always October 2022 and the soon to be announced U.S. ½ MILE.
We hear rumors that the competition is heating up for the overall Beeville Chase 3.0 track record. We are wondering…. Whose top speed will be on our logo in 2023? Could it be you?
