Bart? He WAS the Speedforce. Rather than having a link with it, he had all of it's power.

Evidence 2: Superboy Prime

Wait just a moment. I won't be using this as a striking feat, but rather a speed feat.

Previously, Prime stopped Wally from Blitzing him.

Evidence 3: Hunter Zolomon/Zoom.

Before, Wally had to amp himself with the speed of the Flash Family to fight Zoom.

On the other hand, Bart was stalemating Hunter during most of his fight, and eventually beat him on his own.

Evidence 4: Straight from the Horse's... Uh, Speedster's mouth.

That's right, it's true. Wally himself admits Bart IS faster than him.
