Can anyone give me a good definition of what exactly a "ICMP PING
speedera" is?  Snort on is detecting *many* of these types of pings
against my web server.  

All activity is originating from different hosts during each scan
cycle, but the same group of hosts is repeated during each cycle. 
See below for a sample of this activity:
