Dare devil Robbie Knievel set a new record on Saturday night, jumping over a total of 24 trucks at Kings Island amusement park near Cincinnati.
The jump was measured at more than 200 feet, and according to Knievel, it would only be made if he was traveling at a speed of 95 MPH at take off.
Before motoring up to the top of the ramp, he spoke to his fans, saying: “Hopefully I’ll see you after the jump.”
Upon landing the record jump, Knievel popped a couple of wheelies in celebration.
“He took a really hard shot at the landing,” said Knievel’s business partner, Jeff Lowe. “But he’s thrilled. We’re all thrilled. He was a lot more nervous about this jump than he let on.”
In successfully making the jump, Robbie beat the record of his own father who cleared 14 greyhound busses back in 1975.
Evel Knievel died last year from pulmonary fibrosis, at the age of 69.
