How good was the Lagana brothers’ 4.485 second, 338.35 mile per hour run during Saturday’s Funny Car Nationals at US 131 Motorsports Park? 

          It was just one tick off the IHRA world record for the quarter mile of 4.484 seconds set by Clay Millican in October, 2005, at Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina.
The speed at which Dom Lagana crossed the finish line was the fastest in history, better than the 337.58 mph achieved by eight-time NHRA World Champion Tony Schumacher at Brainerd, Minn., in August, 2005.
          The quickest quarter mile time ever posted was 4.420 seconds by Doug Kalitta at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., in 2004.
