Off-road truck driver Bryce Menzies will give new meaning to the term “high noon” when he launches his truck over a New Mexico ghost town on August 28th (AEST). With only modest modifications being made to the truck, Menzies will look to exceed the current off-road truck distance record of 332 ft.
For the jump, Menzies will pilot his two-wheel drive Pro 2 short course truck, which boasts 900 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque, over the frontier ghost town located in the American Southwest. The feat will symbolize both the progression of his career and his leap into international racing.
“I had the idea for this jump because it’s just something that I’ve always wanted to do. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved jumping things – dirt bikes, buggies, whatever,” said Menzies.
The jump will air Live on Red Bull TV on August 28th at 5.00am AEST.
