That is interesting info, and I used it (and a few assumptions) to estimate a speed at the end of the standing start mile.
So, it seems like an end speed of 122 mph at the mile mark might be in the ball park (assuming my math is OK)..
It is slowly warming here in the Great Wisconsin Northwoods.

It was on sand, on the beach, and on bias ply tires. I can't imagine trying that. Also, I believe the way the Standing Start Mile Competition was run, the 90.7 was the 'average' speed, not the top speed at the end of the mile. They would measure the time it took to cover a mile from a dead stop, 1 mile divided by the time taken would yield the 'average' rate of speed. Of course, the car started at '0', so it had to be going more than 90.7 at the end of the run for the 'average' to be 90.7 mph.
Quarter mile tests at the time were about 16 seconds at 90 mph through the traps, and 0-100 mph times at about 20 seconds. I'm sure the G was going a lot faster than 90.7 at the end of the mile. The 'Flying Mile' test was the top end test, and for the G that turned out to be 143 mph by Bob McAtee. Your mileage may vary. ;-)
