A Guinness World Record was set in Bowling Green, Kentucky in, what else… a Corvette!

Scot Burner earned the record for the fastest mile driven BACKWARDS at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, just down the road from where his 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was built.

Burner hosts a YouTube channel called Always in Reverse that features him driving cars backward to see what their top speed is. “It hasn’t caught on yet, but maybe this will get people interested,” he said.

He actually got inspired to start driving backward in 2000 when he purchased a Honda S2000 sports car. “I had to back it up a long distance and was able to get it up to 47 mph. I thought, ‘well, that was fun,’ then I tried the cruise control and was surprised to find that it worked.”

He managed the mile in 75.18 seconds, smashing the previous record of 97.02 seconds.
