Ride along on a record-setting run at Bonneville

Note how much steering Danny Thompson does as he drive 446 mph

In August, Danny Thompson followed in his father Mickey’s footsteps, or tire tracks, by setting a speed record on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Danny updated his father’s 50-year-old Challenger 2 and set an AA/FS record for piston-driven vehicles, averaging 448.757 mph, pretty impressive for a vehicle half-a-century old.

The video is provided by Holley Performance, and by MSD and Racepak.
