Team Hot Wheels managed to take their plan to an end for now. They tried to set a new record for the longest jump and really did it. The driver, Tanner Foust landed a ramp-to-ramp distance jump of "only" 332 feet.
Actually Tanner Faust is a name that might sound familiar as this is not the first record in his career. He won three times the gold medal in the X Games and he is also a stunt driver.
The record was not the only great thing about the competition. A lot of memories were brought back as the Hot Wheels have a very deep background in racing.
The name of the driver was unknown until the beginning of the race when he was introduced as Team Hot Wheels Yellow Driver. What the mystery driver did was first sped down a 90 ft. ramp, suspended on a giant 10-story high door and then he levitated across the infield Motor Speedway.
Foust itself is amazed of his record and declared that as a child while playing with Hot Wheels imagined how it would be to win a competition of this kind. He also declared that what helped him win was the training and the testing during which he managed to know his limits and also, if it's possible, to go further than that.
