Stunt driving is tough. Putting a semi truck through a stunt jump is really tough.
Jeff Walton is in big demand. He can put Class 8 semi trucks through some maneuvers that make stunt car drivers jealous. This jump was a world record.
How long was the jump? Walton put this Class 8 semi truck off of a 12 foot ramp and got it airborne for more than 60 yards from a single run.
Unfortunately, the semi truck dropped both the diesel engine and the drivetrain out the back, as you can see during the dramatic landing full of sparks and fire. But hey – a jump is a jump is a jump and he got the record.
Have a look for yourself!
