Congratulations Tanner Foust on a New World Record

We all know you have seen it already… We at Axial just want to say CONGRATULATIONS TANNER!!!

Tanner set a new world record distance jump in a four-wheeled vehicle at the Indianapolis 500 on May 29th 2011. See, we’ve been saying that desert trucks rule!

Just in case you have not seen it, watch Foust, drops 10 stories down 90 feet of orange track and soars 332 feet through the air, 31ft over the previous record set by Johnny Greaves in 2009:

Yea, we are Tanner FANS!!! Check Tanner out in the 100th episode of The Radio Control Show [Tanners interview starts at the 3:57minute mark]:
We like how Tanner tells his story growing up with R/C and the relevance to his 1:1 pursuits!

Now to see what Tanner would do in his next big media stunt… maybe backflip a 1:1 KOH style rig… Monster Trucks have already done that so…
Just what will he dream up next?
