Watch a team led by NASCAR driver set world record Hot Wheels distance run
Bests the previous record by 100 feet
When we were kids, we wish we could do what Joey Logano and a team pulled off last week in North Carolina.
The team laid out enough Hot Wheels track to send a tiny car 1941.6 feet, enough to beat the Guinness World Record for such a feat, set in Russia last year, by 100 feet.
It took over a week to build the track that snaked through Logano’s shop and ended outside in the parking lot. There were several hours and several attempts before the car was sent the entire distance aided by 122 booster and ended with a smoky burnout from Logano’s full sized Ford Hot Wheels Mustang.
Guinness was on hand to certify the results.
"Talk about a dream come true," Logano said. "I have so many memories playing with my Hot Wheels cars as a kid. ... Hot Wheels basically founded my passion for racing -- the first car I ever had was a Hot Wheels car."
