Fred Rompelberg crashed at nearly 150mph while trying for the drafting speed record. He survived. It took him 2 years to recover his form. It took a couple years but he eventually set the record at nearly 167mph in 1995,

The record has been re-set by Denise Mueller-Korenek 2 years ago at 183.9mph. They got beat by a girl...

Thx for citing that, I remember her record and was curious how this compared, but not curious enough to overcome my laziness and actually google it (which come to think of it, would have required less time than typing this post)

Aren't step-throughs unstable at that kind of speed?

I assume what's going on there is, white had pulled the goalie, red escaped alone to score, and wanted to celebrate with someone, anyone?

There was a goalie there. You can see the mask in that snip. But, I think you got the rest right. Maybe he thought it was his own teammate behind him?
