Drag Racing Times Question

Ok, I'm checking out this drag strip about 30 miles from me. These are the times they have posted for winning the last street import event.

Street IMPORT $25 Entry sponsored by Polk Performance

Winner: Kris Lingo,Russellville Neon .926 12.05@86mph $200

Runner Up: Dustin McManis, Conway Del Sol .958 12.03@87mph $100

Semi: Amanda Mitchell, Cabot Prelude .738 12.75@78mph


Now I'm certain this is an 1/8 mile track. So here's where I'm confused. 86 mph seems really fast in the 1/8th but 12.05 seconds seems kind of slow in the 1/8th, especially if you are crossing the 1/8th mile line at 86 mph. What gives?
