Mickey Thompson: Fastest Man on Wheels
Mickey Thompson roared out of the hot rodding world of Southern California to become the "Fastest Man on Wheels," when his Pontiac powered Challenger One broke the 400 mph mark at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
This didn't become an official record because of difficulties he encountered on a second run. The speed authorities require a second run and take the average for the record books. This promotional film captures the drama of his attempt.
Jason McVicar - Bonneville & SCTA - Speed Week 2008
Jason McVicar's crash on his turbo Hayabusa while still accelerating after being timed at 236mph in the 3rd mile on the 5 mile long course. The crash happened directly after the 3.5 mile marker and the final resting of the bike and rider was just shy of the 4 mile marker.
This video is only being shown here for informational purposes by verbal authorization of the subject in the footage, Jason specifically requested I put this video up for others to understand what can happen at these speeds. I am not sure if this video was taken by the team or others on the team and it is here for viewing only. Reproductions that are used for anything other then personal educational purposes are not permitted and this is a private video with ownership rights belonging to the person filming the video and Jason McVicar.
Jason was released by the local medical facility with a shattered kneecap, many leather abrasions and a tremendous amount of pain and sore spots of course. He retained 100% recollection of the accident. He will be back and will continue to make records as he has done in the past.
He obtained a top speed record of 253mph at this same meet!
WEAR YOUR GEAR FOLKS as even the best of the best can run into problems.
Jason, you are an outstanding rider... prayers to you and your family my friend.
