Things didn’t go exactly as planned, but after six months pf preparation Bryce Menzies has set the record by jumping his off-road truck 379.4 feet over a New Mexico ghost town to set a new truck distance record.
“I’m extremely happy with the outcome,” said Bryce Menzies. “We broke a world record, which is incredible, we went 379 feet flying a truck. This has been my dream and to see it come to life was surreal – it was one of the greatest moments of my life. I’m so glad I did it. I came away with a broken shoulder, that’s not bad at all, and I’m just glad I’m in the record books.”
For the jump, Menzies piloted his two-wheel drive Pro 2 short course truck, which boasts 900 horsepower and more that 500 lb.-ft. of torque, over the frontier ghost town located in New Mexico. The jump symbolized both the progression of Menzies’ career and his leap into international racing.
