Oklahoma speeder caught at 208 mph
Nineteen-year-old Hector Fraire first tripped a radar gun doing 84 mph on the Kilpatrick Turnpike in Oklahoma City, before speeding away as police tried to pull him over.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Fraire’s 2011 Ford Mustang was then clocked doing 176 mph and 208 mph, and tried to elude the chase vehicle by turning off his headlights and brake lights.
I guess the Mustang debacle of the late ’70s/early ’80s is well behind them. I recall racing against a ’79 model with a VW Rabbit. I beat him in acceleration and top speed (don’t ask; I don’t know statute of limitations).
