    Jammers FTW

    The two laser jammers they had must have been reliable...

    Surprisingly, Ed says problems with law enforcement were minimal. Though the group saw a lot of police cars, especially in New Mexico and Arizona, the only close call came late at night in Ohio when they passed a Crown Vic sitting in a median. Dave was driving, and Ed yelled to slow down but it was too late. They passed the police car at 95 miles per hour. It didn't move an inch.

    I thought the previous record holder was Richard Rollins off of Gas Monkey Garage? At least on the show he boast that his buddy and him hold the record. They even had one show where he found the previous record holders car, a Jaguar, that they beat in a junkyard and he went and bought it.

    Richard Rawlings was in the mix, yes - some details about a 'dispute' here (R.R. also chimed in via comments as well):

    The previous record was an average of 91mph, and he didn't get stopped at all either.

    Richard Rawlings and Dennis Collins had a slower time than Alex Roy, but they made their run after Roy had done his, but before he announced it. Rawlings and Collins thought they had the record, but it was beaten before they made it, and now Rawlings cries like a little girl that Roy took a different route and he won't believe Ed Bolian without seeing the gps tracking. He is desperately trying to hold onto a record he never really had. Props to him for making the run as fast as he did, but he isn't the record holder, he really never was, and he should either let it go, or try to beat Ed Bolian's time.

    No * required as far as I'm concerned. Everyone who has done this has meticulously planned when to do it so as to minimize traffic, and you can rest assured that Alex Roy and Ed Bolian would have done the same had this happened in 06 or 13. Alex Roy used a damn private plane to scout ahead for him. Ed Bolian was the first modern attempt to use the extra fuel tanks in the trunk, and Doug and Arne had like a dozen people driving ahead of them reporting where all the cops and traffic were. These people ratchet strapped a couple marine gas tanks in the trunk and went for it. To me, that seems more in the spirit of cannonball than just throwing tons of money at it to try to buy the record. If this record needs an *, then so do all the others.
