Default Top Speed - Auto Club Speedway

What is a rough expectation for top speed for a reasonably well prepared American Sedan @ Auto Club Speedway in Fontana?

Anyone know of any in-car videos that have telemetry data in them
that might be useful for figuring out such info?

A friend sent me a link to this:

Looks like about 150-152 is top speed. This T1 car on the 2nd lap runs
right about at the current AS record for Auto Club, so it is probably close
enough for an approximation. I was a little surprised by how much they
slow down for the big corner that is on the banking.
