I came across this story a couple of years ago, and while it isn't as mindblowing as the greatest ground speed check ever, it's still pretty awesome (and was way more mindblowing for those that were there). Brian Shul is a man among men and author of one of the definitive works on the SR-71, Sled Driver. He is also a wonderful orator and storyteller. Needing no fiction whatsoever to captivate his audience. In this story, which was originally published in Plane & Pilot by Mr. Shul himself, we get the other end of the speed spectrum.
