Default Cannonball run

Interesting article on wired:

The Pedal-to-the-Metal, Totally Illegal, Cross-Country Sprint for Glory

Snippet:

And so the clock starts and the taillights flare, and they're off again, strapped down, fueled up, and bound on an outlaw enterprise with 2,795 miles of interstate and some 31,000 highway cops between them and the all-time speed record for crossing the American continent on four wheels.


[Mods, if section is incorrect, could you please move it to the right one? Thanks!]

The Cannonball Run is awesome and also a bit insane. However, in these kinda outrageous lunacy, the Gumball takes the cake. 3000 miles around the world in seven days. Man... One has to see the Supercars belting across places like Thailand and crashing to being write-offs.
