Fastest Vehicles Known To The Human Race
Spirit of America
The Spirit of America was a recordsmashing vehicle that held its own against the Green Monster and Wingfoot Express in the 60s. Piloted by Craig Breedlove, the Spirit of America utilized a F104 Starfighter fighter jet engine, the same as the Green Monster, but with greater success. In 1965, Breedlove was able to break the 600 miles per hour barrier, a feat that had not been accomplished until then. During a failed run in 1964, the Spirit of America actually crashed, leaving skid marks for five miles before crashing into a pond. This earned the Breedlove another dubious place in the record books, for longest skid marks.
