Tanner Foust Happy With Podium in Texas
"Hoon Kaboom was typical Texas style: Big!" said Foust. "The crowd was big, the track was big and the jump was big."
As you can see from this photo, Tanner got big air from the 65-foot leap of faith from a blind takeoff to the sweet-spot. Seven competitors had problems, but Foust holds the world record for the longest four-wheel vehicle jump after a stunt last year that saw him jump 332' ramp-to-ramp for Hot Wheels at the 2011 Indy 500.
"I am happy with the result. The course was tough on cars and drivers, with long straights and a massive gap jump on every lap," said Foust. "Many cars couldn't take that kind of beating."
