A 900 HP Truck Jumps 379 Feet Over A Ghost Town
August 29th, 2017
Last year, Bryce Menzies set the new world record for the longest off-road truck jump in a modified 900-horsepower Pro2 truck. He managed a 379.4-foot jump that not only smashed the old record—it also looked ridiculously cool. Who doesn't love a good truck jump? And thankfully, Red Bull, made it possible to poke around the footage of that jump captured with a 360-degree camera. It's awesome because you get perspective from the driver's seat and also the ground.
Take some time out of your work day to watch a few glorious slow-mos of the truck flying over the “ghost town” set. Now you can probably spend way too much time with these looking at every conceivable angle of something, but we'll leave it up to you to decide your favorite view. Let us know which one's best.
And while this jump was successful, Menzies actually broke his shoulder on an attempt to smash his newly set 379.4-foot record. Small price to pay for this incredible stunt for adrenaline junkies. Still, getting a record and trying to achieve an even crazier jump right afterward is the kind of insanity we can all appreciate. So check out the whole thing and let us know your thoughts!
