Kelly Bise has a high-powered Chevrolet Camaro that just can’t seem to make its luck at Texas Mile. Once, while on a quarter mile attempt, the car was flying at 220 mph when both its rear tires turned up flat. On another occasion, as his driver was attempting to become the fastest Camaro in a standing mile, the car caught fire at speeds in excess of 243 mph.

Determined to not let past foils get in the way, Bise and his driver named Josh took the high-powered Camaro to Texas Mile for one more attempt at the books. With steely determination and unnerving poise, Josh was able to finish the standing mile with the Camaro unscathed. In the process, he was able to reach a top speed of 244 mph, becoming the fastest car to run during the recently concluded Texas Mile and, in turn, also became the fastest Camaro in the world in a standing mile.

Mad props for the impressive run, buddy. The sideways drift at the end was also a nice touch to conclude the session.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Wow, they actually have quite a lot of feats made for this edition of the Texas Mile. I really can’t wait for the one in October, I sure bet that there will be a lot more there.

it is likely that his record would be broken in next year’s Texas Mile. But nevertheless, that one was certainly a huge effort on his part.

Well, that one is definitely one heck of a ride. I really am astounded that he actually managed to pull this one off. I wonder what sort of stunt they would try to do next.

Well, I must admit, that is one great drive. A chevy running a 244 mph at Texas Mile, that is the first one. Congratulations to Kelly Bise he really did it well.

I would say that that one is definitely a hot Camaro. I know that the car is really great on its own. But I still can’t get hold of the fact that they would actually be able to make this one go up to more than 200 mph.

Considering all the work that he has done to which car, it is really not that surprising that he was able to set that record. But I would agree that the guy’s guts also played a lot here.

Well, I would say that the guy really has a lot of determination. And considering that he really pushed the car a lot in all those three attempts, I definitely like his guts.

Well, it seems that we have found already the fastest Camaro ever! I bet Texas Mile has been so exciting because of this production!

Oh yes! I think 244 mph for a muscle car is kind of impressive for its quite a proof on how powerful is this car. And i wonder on what will its record when it makes a record in the Nurburgring track!
