Wagstaff’s run of 3.812 seconds at 200.26mph slightly improved on his previous record of 3.828 in the supercharged Noonan Hemi-powered 57 Chev, and was one of three 200mph+ runs he made during the day.

Also joining the 200mph club was Terry Seng, driving Kyle Hopf’s twin turbocharged Camaro, with a 200.05mph run sneaking into the exclusive club.

Almost joining Wagstaff and Hopf over 200 was Joe Gauci, who improved on his Friday run with a new personal best of 3.939 at 199.35mph.
