Johnny Greaves Jumps His Truck 301ft

This is the guy that I took pictures of at Redbud MX in 08 which is pretty cool....

TORC Johnny Greaves Makes 300 ft Jump in Truck : 44 / Off Road IH8 Pavement


That picture I took (well actually fired off tons during his 3 attempts at 8fps)...



Someone else filmed that day:

I got an email about that yesterday from TORC. Pretty neat stuff. Johnny is my favorite driver in TORC followed by Jeff Kincaid (they run 2 different classes). I have been a fan of Johnny for years.

My old roomie was at the jump at Red Bud but didn't get any pics. That is a cool one you got.

I got tons of pics. The first set I didn't have to increase the contrast as much. It got a little dusty.

He kinda makes Ken Block's jump look small...


My family knows Tim Ferry from back in the day so I'll be pushing to go to Redbud more frequently.

Don't worry, Pastrana is supposed to be trying to break Blocks record here soon.

Wow, I guess I've lived like 15 minutes from Red Bud for about 4 years, but I didn't know big stuff went on there. I drive by it pretty frequently.

I saw this earlier. It's probably more exciting if you're actually in it. I think Pastrana's on New Years Eve jumping onto a barge will be much more entertaining no matter the outcome...
