The North Dakota Highway Patrol believes it may have a new speeding record.

Capt. Mark Bethke said Vitaliy Poberezchnik, 19, was about 10 miles east of Bismarck on Interstate 94 Friday when he was clocked at 176 mph on his motorcycle.

“That’s probably the highest we’ve ever had,” Bethke said.

He said Poberezchnik turned his 2006 Suzuki back toward Bismarck at the McKenzie interchange. A trooper was waiting for him on Highway 10, Bethke said.

Bethke did not know if Poberezchnik was wearing a helmet.

Poberezchnik also was charged with reckless driving and received a $505 ticket, Bethke said.

Bethke said Poberezchnik has 14 days to pay the fine and is slated to appear in court on June 6 on the reckless driving charge.

Poberezchnik, of Lincoln, was not available for comment.
