Team Vesco’s Turbinator II runs 463 mph, breaks Speed Week record


In what is shaping up to be an absolutely amazing week of racing on the salt, Team Vesco’s turbine-powered Turbinator II streamliner has just recorded the fastest flying mile speed in the 70-year history of Speed Week. After working through issues with the new car in 2016 and promising passes in 2017, Turbinator II has once again brought 400-mph timeslips back to the Team Vesco pits. How does 443 mph sound?

Looks like mile 6 would have made 500 mph, based on the mile 2 thru mile 5 accelerations, yay!
