Visitors attending the 2012 Charlotte Diesel Super Show will have the unique opportunity to see two world records be challenged.
The show, which is set for Oct. 5-6, 2012 at the zMax Dragway, in Concord, N.C., will feature Aaron’s Outdoor monster truck attempting a world speed record and Jesse Toler attempting a world stoppie record.
Jesse Toler, a professional sports bike freestyle rider for more than nine years, will need to roll more than 1,000 ft. at speeds of more than 100 mph to beat the stoppie record. A stoppie happens when the driver of sports bike traveling at a high rate of speed uses the front brakes of the motorcycle to lift the rear of the bike and then travels 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 record of 96.80 miles per hour. When breaking the record earlier this year, he actually flamed out the engine prior to finishing the run, so he is optimistic that he’ll be able to again set a new record.
Aaron’s Outdoor monster truck will make practice runs at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 5 and at 1:15 p.m. Oct 6, and attempt to break the record at 4:45 p.m.
Toler will perform two stunt demonstrations at 1 and 3 p.m. Friday and at 10 a.m. Saturday. He will attempt the world stoppie record at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
