Rob Dyrdek Chevrolet Sonic Kick Flip Auto Spiral Jump
We researched the history of the original jumps and talked to everyone still living about it and then we built the ramps and did 8 tests into boxes and one on the landing ramp before we were comfortable enough to put Rob Dyrdek behind the wheel. I would like to thank my crew; James Smith, Eric Matuchek, Tom Harper, Cary McCall, Kris Ryan, Serge Kolchinskiy, Dailyn Matthews and Jason Lewis. Mike Ryan Stunt Coordinator-ramp designer.
Extreme Danger Rally Race in a Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.

Rob Dyrdek Chevrolet Sonic Guinness World Record : Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump
Television star and former professional skateboarder, Rob Dyrdek sets a
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record for the Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump by a Car
Rob Dyrdek and the Chevrolet Sonic have launched themselves into GUINNESS
WORLD RECORDS® glory together- backwards!
In a gravity defying automotive stunt, television star and former
professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek commandeered a Chevrolet Sonic in the
Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump by a Car.
The spectacular stunt, which took place before ecstatic spectators at Six
Flags Magic Mountain, totaled 89 feet 3¼ inches. Dyrdek successfully
landed the Sonic on the catch ramp and was able to drive away from the
stunt to meet the Guinness requirements - thereby qualifying both the car
and the driver as GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS record holders.
This is the second time for Dyrdek, host of MTV's "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy
Factory", to get behind the wheel of a Sonic and attempt to set another
first. In 2011, Dyrdek successfully performed a 360-degree kick-flip off a
ramp, also using the Chevrolet Sonic.
"The Sonic is a great car for firsts," said Dyrdek. "I have always been a
Chevy guy, so when we decided we wanted to set a Guinness World Record for
the finale of "Fantasy Factory," using the Sonic again just made sense."
Dyrdek performed the stunt before spectators at Six Flags Magic Mountain,
while MTV filmed the jump for the Season Finale of "Fantasy Factory," which
is set to air on March 13, 2014 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on MTV. In order to
qualify to set a Guinness World Records achievement, Dyrdek had to
successfully land the Sonic on the catch ramp and be able to drive away
from the stunt.
With all high-speed action stunts, safety is a priority. The Chevrolet
Sonic is the first and only car in its class to receive a 5-Star Overall
Vehicle Score for Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, and offers 10 standard air bags and high-strength steel as
part of its body structure, making the Sonic a strong choice for this
"We take extra care and precautions with each and every stunt we create,"
said Elia Popov, Owner, J.E.M. F/X Inc. "Rob is always willing to try
anything once and for this backwards jump, we felt confident that the Sonic
would keep him safe," said Popov.
MTV filmed Dyrdek's Sonic jump for the season finale of "Rob Dyrdek's
Fantasy Factory" which will air on March 13, 2014 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on MTV.
This is the second time Dyrdek has achieved a Chevy Sonic "first." In
December 2011, Dyrdek successfully performed a 360-degree kick-flip off a
ramp, also in a Sonic.

Incredible Stunt Driving...Car Drives on Two Wheels Thru a Shop !
Just two days after Rob Dyrdek "Kick Flipped" this very car at Magic
Mountain California for his show Fantasy Factory on MTV...one of the
stuntmen involved in setting up the ramps and car, James A Smith, thought
it would be a fun challenge to pilot the brand new Chevrolet Sonic through
this working fabrication shop. And not just any shop...this is JEM FX,
Hollywoods number one big time Effects power house. Run by Elia Popov and
his team of mega talented engineers and fabricators, JEM FX creates the
practical magic we see on screen.
So when a stunt driver decides to throw it down by saying he can drive
through the shop while everyone keeps working, plus not wreck the car that
needs to go on display right after, there was a lot of pressure on James.
It only took 2 takes and we locked this stunt in. Much to the amazement of
everyone in the shop.
