The bigger news is when the car enthusiast community gets a bad rap as a result one of these fuck nuts killing an innocent driver or themselves.

I see, what state are you in where it's locked down and the roads are empty?

Awkward to think some car enthusiast hopes for another COVID shut down just to break some record.

What size extra fuel tank does one need exactly?

The Cannonball has been going on for nearly 50 years, yet to hear that story or hear about the "Bad rap" among the general population. They literally made movies on it.

Every single person on this forum of car enthusiasts is just as likely to earn a bad wrap by not signaling, driving too fast, and having exhaust's too loud.

This would be like saying "wait till people find out how bad alcohol is when it kills someone".

Yeah sure. Ask every single person on this forum of car enthusiasts whether they go 150+ mph for 25 hrs straight and whether that's akin to not signaling when changing lanes.

Once you have the answer; let's compare notes.

All it takes is one last second unintended lane change by a non-participant driver and the best pro driver in world won't be able to do shit.

Keep in mind we're talking about US driving lane discipline; not the German Autobahn.

These runs are awesome but insanely reckless. One crash could ruin a person's life forever. This is just a race for bragging rights. If you want to have fun at these speeds do it on a track or an empty road at the crack of dawn for two seconds!

Stupid. It's one thing to risk your own life on an open road, it's another blowing by cars at twice the speed limit.

It just take some mom in a van with three kids to change lanes in front of a dumbass doing 150 and it's over for all of them.
