The momentous quarter mile speed test took place at Arizona’s Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, at which point Reid had to make two separate passes at speeds above 50 kilometers per hour for the record to stick. According to Guinness World Records, he averaged 76.625 kph (47.64 mph). Reid told The Province, “It drives unbelievably, it is so stable.”
The Timber Kings team first dreamed up the world record stunt while attending the Barrett-Jackson auction a few years ago. Commendably, that’s exactly where the Cedar Rocket will end up next year. The team will auction off the record-setting log car in 2017 with all proceeds benefitting veterans’ charities.
