Speedway Motors Streamliner Retires With New Record

Speedway Streamliner

It’s always good to go out on a high note.

The Speedway Motors-sponsored MacKichan & Schulz streamliner ended a 22-year racing career in September with a pair of nearly identical passes at 324mph and 322mph, establishing a new D/FS land speed record of 323.3mph. The record-breaking runs took place during the Utah Salt Flats Racing Association World of Speed meet at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Co-owners John MacKichan and Tim Schulz (who is also the car’s driver) designed and built the streamliner in the late-1980s and have re-engineered portions of it to remain competitive over the past two decades. Through the years, the 26-foot long, 3,000-pound bullet has competed in a variety of classes using several different small-block Chevy engine configurations, setting eight records along the way. This USFRA D/FS record was set using a nitrous-injected 302ci small-block Chevy engine.

Changing rules render the car obsolete for future competition, so it is being restored and will go on permanent display at the Smith Collection Museum of American Speed, where MacKichan oversees museum operations. For more information on the museum, visit www.MuseumofAmericanSpeed.com
