While 1D analysis is a good measuring stick and useful, surely you must realize that the MPH difference isn't about anything magical...it's that Cd varies with velocity. Your Reynolds numbers are going to be changing, turbulence will vary with velocity. So, for example, a ProStock car may have a more consistent Reynolds number as velocity rises while a motorcycle's Reynolds number will increase due to the odd shape with the rider.

The most obvious, and researched, example of this is breaking the sound barrier.
