that's 80 mph avg. for 35 straight hours? I don't think so.... But I think he will definitely make the trip coast -to- coast....

Maybe Racer X just thinks it's not going to be possible to make in 35 hours... right Racer X? You don't think he will fail altogether do you?

but what a heck of a journey - and how could you not take that on with a dang 1098 awaiting you? Dream job that guy has!
