According to these guys:

It can easily do 200mph.  I don't know what tires are on the car, but I 
would imagine that they come with high speed ratings.  Those speeds you are 
quoting from Nazareth Speedway...  are those max speeds or lap 
speeds?  Those turns have a way of slowing you down.  Actually, I don't 
know anything about the configuration of those cars or that track, so I 
can't really comment about the comparison.  As far as going 200mph on the 
street is concerned, I don't think the car really knows where it is.  I 
think it's just a matter of how crazy you are.
