Trio drives from New York to Los Angeles in 27 hours, setting new Cannonball Run record | CBS News

Arne Toman, Doug Tabbutt, and Berkeley Chadwick spent two years modifying their vehicle to make a 2,800-mile journey in only 27 hours and 25 minutes. The drivers managed to beat the record by over an hour and had a total stopping time of only 22 minutes. The trio was able to reach a top speed of 193mph and kept an average of 103 through the journey. In order to accomplish this without being sent to jail, they used a thermal scope, radar detectors, a police scanner, and other equipment to avoid getting their speed clocked. They claim no other drivers were ever at risk, and they passed other vehicles at a reasonable speed, despite the Governors Highway Safety Association declaring the stunt as incredibly reckless and dangerous to them and others.
