There’s a new ‘Cannonball Run’ record for driving across the USA


You’ve probably seen the movie, Cannonball Run, a star-studded romp across the country with Burt Reynolds and friends. It was based on a very real event: Back in 1971, automotive legends Brock Yates and Steve Smith took off in a 1971 Dodge Custom Sportsman van called the “Moon Trash II” in a celebration of the United States Interstate system and as a protest to the restrictive speed limits on our highways. That first run took 35 hours and 54 minutes.
