The Fastest Outlaw in History: 'I Drove from New York to LA in 29 Hours'

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistSeptember 2, 2016

If you called Ed Bolian a criminal, you wouldn't be lying. You could also say he's the fastest man alive. Some might even say he's crazy for driving his Mercedes from New York to Los Angeles in under 29 hours.

The Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash is the highly illegal race that the movie The Cannonball Run was based on. These drivers risk speeds in excess of 120 mph, speed traps and arrest for the glory of being known as the fastest driver in America.

Watch the video to see how Bolian and his team managed to shatter the previous record.

With thanks to the documentary 32 Hours 7 Minutes.
