>>> do you recall anybody driving past you really fast in the past few days? one of the great events for motor heads just concluded. every year this event goes on without most law abiding civilians finding out about it. it is called the canon ball run. it is a race from new york to l.a. whoever arrives first wins no questions asked. this year's winner made the drive in 28 hours. think about that. it is 2,800 miles. average speed 98 miles per hour. he did it in a tricked out 2004 mercedes with extra fuel tanks, good radar detectors and range extenders otherwise known as bed pans in the business, not pretty just fast.
