Illegal Races Drive from New York City to Redondo Beach, California in under 27 Hours – and Get a Lot of Hate for It
The Cannonball Run, an illegal race where individuals or teams drive as fast as they can from New York to California, has a new record-holder. The team used the national crisis and empty roads to beat the previous record (which had an average speed of 103MPH) by over 45 minuets, however they haven’t received a warm welcome from most of the Cannonball community for doing so.
While no matter the circumstances this is extremely impressive, many have pointed out that using a time of such pain for the country to set a illegal driving record is not in good taste. Additionally, an accident could have put the extremely stressed medical services of many communities in even more trouble. It is still to be seen if these team is able to actually claim the record as theirs, or if this run will be disqualified to the the circumstances.
