Alex RoyWired tells the strange story of Alex Roy, a man obsessed with breaking the Cannonball Run record (Manhattan, NY to Newport Beach, CA in 37 hours and 7 minutes), and the lengths he’s gone to take a spot in the annals of street racing.

    Wow!

    That guy has some serious balls.

    What’s funny to read is the comments. They can tell you something about the kind of country we live in nowadays. Some people are scared of risk, while others applaud a criminal act.

    I applaud Roy. We have plenty of rich folks who do nothing but squander their money while laughing at the poor. This guy has drive, even though it is a bit misguided.

    Perhaps he could put that kind of obsession towards something more constructive?
