Guy drove across the United States in 28 hours and 50 minutes in a Mercedes, breaking the Cannonball Run record.

28-year old Ed Bolian broke the Cannonball Run Record from 2006 with big margin. Mr. Bolian drove his Mercedes across the United States in 28 hours and 50 minutes. When I hear Cannonball I think Burt Reynolds. He starred in the classic 80s Cannonball run movies. The story of Ed Bolian Cannonball run is less fun as the major part was preparation. Jalopnik has great profile of Ed Bolian and his record-breaking Cannonball run.

The trip was 2813.7 miles long and that translate into an average speed of 98mph, which is far beyond any US speed limits. This makes this record of course highly controversal, but it is still an amazing achievement.
