Not even remotely possible. I've hit upper 130s in my CTS-V (as seen here), which has ~30hp more than the stock 400bhp. Your buddy's car weighs ~100# less than mine, and has ~180hp/180ft-lb fewer than mine. That math does not add up to 155 at Summit. I managed ~118mph or so in my sister's bone stock '02 WRX wagon when I took it to Summit.

Just to beat this one to death, because your buddy's claim is so preposterous, here are some numbers to compare:
'05 CTS-V - power-to-weight ~8.8#/hp - 137mph
'02 WRX - power-to-weight ~14.3#/hp - 118mph
'07 A4 3.2 - power-to-weight ~15.5#/hp - 155mph
