Back in 1963, Craig Breedlove famously set the world land speed record in the Spirit Of America, returning the title to the United States from Englishman John Cobb. And although Breedlove went on to set more records and go much faster than the 428.37 speed he achieved that day, we thought it would be fun to tell the story straight from a first hand account written in the pages of a 1963 Sports Illustrated Magazine. This is a great story, with quotes from Breedlove, and a historic vantage point from a very exciting time in land speed racing history. We hope you dig it! Hosted by Kevin Oeste.
