Charlotte Diesel Show to host two world record attempts
Visitors attending the Charlotte Diesel Super Show, Oct 5-6 at the zMax Dragway, in Concord, N.C., will have the opportunity to see the Aaron’s Outdoor monster truck attempt a world speed record and Jesse Toler attempt a world stoppie record.
Jesse Toler, a professional sports bike freestyle rider for more than 9 years, will need to roll more than 1,000 feet at speeds of over 100 mph to beat the stoppie record. A stoppie happens when traveling at a high rate of speed and using the front brakes of the motorcycle to lift the rear of the bike and traveling to the vertical balance point on only the front tire.
Randy Moore, driver of the Aaron’s Outdoor monster truck, will try to break his own speed record of 96.80 miles per hour. When breaking the record earlier this year, he actually burned up the engine prior to finishing the run, so he is optimistic that he’ll be able to again set a new record.
The truck will make practice runs on Friday at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday at 1:15 p.m and attempt to break the record Saturday at 4:45 p.m. Jesse Toler will perform two stunt demonstrations on Friday at 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. and Saturday at 10:00 a.m. He will attempt the world stoppie record on Saturday at 3:30 p.m..
