Congratulations to Carl Reese on the LA2NY Motorcycle Record

In November I discussed the 11 new cross country records that were set in 2015. It was an epic year for the idea of Cannonball and the pursuit of extreme distance speed driving feats. One of them I had listed was “Motorcycle NY to LA Record – TBA.” Well, yesterday it was announced. Carl Reese, […]

A great opportunity to support a documentary of the history of transcontinental motorcycle records

A few weeks ago I discussed the 11 new Cannonball style transcontinental records that were set in 2015. One of those is a new LA to NY Motorcycle Record. The rider is an avid Cannonball historian and is producing a documentary about the history of crossing our great country by motorcycle. It should be a […]

Caffeine & Octane: December 2015

Since I missed last month’s C&O for The 2904, I was eager to get back to the event this month. It was a chilly morning but the turnout was fantastic. I had Megan and Graham bring the S55 that was still filthy from its run cross the country and I drove the CL. Graham prefers […]

An Index of our 2015 run in The 2904

On November 1-2, 2015, we participated in The 2904. It is a wacky NY to LA cheap car race inspired by the Cannonball Run. Our time was 32:05, the fastest time ever in a competitive NY to LA event. Here is an index of the posts here relating to that drive.  The preparation of the […]

A breakdown of our budget for The 2904

Cross country driving is expensive, even in a cheap car. The article yesterday on Jalopnik discussed some of the expenses involved but I thought the full breakdown might be interesting. Here is the spreadsheet that we provided to the organizers of The 2904 to explain how we spent our money. You will notice that the […]

Italian Car Day: 2015

I have been going to Italian Car Day for years. John Montgomery and his team do a brilliant job of putting it on and it is always a great time. Here are photos from 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014. It was a chilly day but there were some great cars in attendance. Definitely looking forward […]

11 New Cross Country Records in ’15: Celebrating the Year of Cannonball

As the season of favorable driving weather comes to a close, it makes sense to look back on an incredible year of Cannonball-style cross country driving. In 2006, Dave Maher, Alex Roy, and Cory Welles broke a record that had stood for 23 years. David Diem and Doug Turner won the 1983 US Express with […]

An amazing writeup on The 2904 by David Simpson

Here is an amazing write up from David Simpson about our experiences on the 2015 running of The 2904. He drove a Lexus SC400 and set a new solo NY to LA record of 34 hours 33 minutes.  “Let’s have a race across the country,” said every car guy ever. “No,” said every lawyer and […]
