Andrew Fails approached me recently to do an article on our 2013 Cannonball Record, largely based on his interest in the problem aspect of preparing for a Cannonball. We had a great discussion and he put together a very informative article. It is certainly worth the read here on Right Foot Down. He cites the recently explosion of the pursuit of cross country driving including events like The 2904 and other records set this year. Enjoy the read.
