Cannonball Record

Thank you to the team that made our 2904 time possible!

Ed Bolian 2904A couple of weeks ago we participated in the 2015 running of the 2904. Our official time was 32 hours 5 minutes. We drove a salvage title 2002 Mercedes S55 AMG that we had to completely resurrect for the trip. That beat the previous record as the fastest time ever in a competitive Cannonball style event. Our 2013 record stands as the fastest time from NY to LA but that was a single car, time trial style drive. The team we had for that drive was an amazing group and this was equally significant. I would like to extend a very special thanks to:

My co-driver Chris S
Master mechanic and co-driver Dave “Klink”
Michael Hill for fabricating the coolest fuel cell ever
Adam Kochanski for strategic assistance and monitoring
Andrew Sweet for chauffeur services to NYC
Monty Knight from Conceal-Pro for electronics wizardry
John Ficarra for organizing an amazing event
Corinna Mantlo for putting together an amazing launch party
John Harrison for services at the inspirational Grand Marshall for the event
The GMC Parking Staff at the Red Ball for taking great care of us
Ash & Ladan in NY for their hospitality and advice
Danny Landoni for scouting our way out of NYC
Carl Reese for leading us through part of California
My lovely wife Megan and Peter Musurlian for witnessing our arrival
The field of fellow competitors that pushed us along the way
My family, co-workers, and God for carrying us through an incredible drive
