    Watched it on the Speed channel a couple weeks ago.
    Used a BMW with every gadget you could think of.
    Their biggest concern was not pissing off the truckers! LOL

    Or had Monfort.

    Give me adrenaline shots laced with cocaine and I can do it in 19hrs on my Ninja h2.

    Anyway, not a Guinness world record. Maine is the tip of the East. Just saying.

    That's not what it's about.

    The Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, it's not just a movie...

    The most infamous one was probably the second one (November, 1972) which Dan Gurney and Brock Yates (founder) won with a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 "Daytona". I remember seeing a picture that Brock took as they were somewhere in the west (AZ?) showing about 175 mph on the speedometer. I 've searched high and low for it, but can't find it.
