It could be that a wheel weight has fallen off of one of your front wheels.

more details on what you drive would help and mention if youve done anything yet. +1 on checking tire balance but have someone inspect the front end too. Often you can get a safety inspection for free.

Alignment issue, broken suspension, wheel balance is off like mentioned before. Does it do it at lower speeds too?

Could be wheel bearing or tire balance issue..
Alignment does nothing in that kind of catagory.

Usually you feel it when you hit your brakes when going 50 plus or slower depending on how bad it is. You can also feel it while driving if its really warped.

You wll also feel a pulsation in the brake pedal.

My car is doing the same thing. It feels like a warped rotor but I need to do some further diagnosis to be sure.
