NotesThe Silver State Classic Challenge, called the fastest road race in the world by Guinness,[1] is an authorized Open Road Racing event run on a 90-mile (140 km) stretch of State Route 318 in Nevada, which is closed for the occasion. The event has been run since 1988, and was the venue for the highest speed achieved on a public highway, when Charles "Chuck" Shafer and Gary Bockman averaged 207.7801 mph (334.3897 km/h) in May 2000 in a Chrysler LeBaron ARCA race car.

Although high-speed race cars receive much of the publicity, the majority of participants take part in mainstream street cars at average speeds ranging from 95 to 150mph (153 to 241 km/h). These cars run the gamut from sports cars such as Corvettes and Mustangs to sedans such as Infiniti G35s, Mercedes wagons, and even Saturns
