Rocket statistics:
Sammy Miller ran the 1/4 mile in 3.58 seconds at 386 mph in 2002.

There is a "Swissrocketman" car running in the low 3's at over 450 mph. This organization is involved in rocket powered bicycles, go karts, and wearable rocket belts...Of course, still in the course of production.
