Different tracks, such as the Brainerd International Raceway in Minnesota and the Santa Pod Raceway in Bedfordshire, England, have claimed to be in some way or another the "fastest drag racing strip in the world." Brainerd International Raceway's claim is based on the fact that a world record speed of 337.58 miles per hour was set there in 2005.

Based on this criteria, it seems that Brainerd International Raceway would lose its claim to fame if another record was set at a different track. Santa Pod Raceway's claim has the caveat that it is the world's fastest all-asphalt track.
