One man has flown further than anyone else in a truck, launching 116m to snare the Guinness world record.
Bryce Menzies, a former Frozen Rush and Baja 500 champ, has earned himself a Guinness World Record after jumping a Red Bull/Pennzoil Pro 2 off-road truck over a ‘Ghost Town’ in New Mexico, USA.
Helping him conquer the previous official 91m truck distance record, and Tanner Foust’s unofficial 101m jump, Menzies used a specially designed 671kW truck with modified weight balance, higher-pressure tyres, and injectors.
The record was achieved on a test jump before a succeeding one ended in a crash – and luckily only a broken shoulder for Menzies – cancelling an attempt for live TV.
