Racing is full of unfinished business. For Mickey Thompson, the famed driver and innovator, it was breaking the piston driven world land speed record. He came achingly close in 1960 with the Challenger I, but broke down on the return run. He struck back in 1968 with the Challenger II, but was foiled by a rainstorm which turned the track at the Bonneville Salt Flats into a lake. After his retirement from racing in 1988, he partnered with his son Danny Thompson, a racer in his own right, to make another attempt. Their collaboration was tragically cut short when Mickey and his wife were murdered.

On the 50th anniversary of his father's original 406mph run, Danny removed the Challenger II from storage and brought it to his Huntington Beach shop. Untouched for almost forty-five years, he began the extensive process or restoring, retrofitting, and updating the vehicle. Danny wants to lay his father's business to rest. For him, that means taking the Challenger II, a vehicle that hasn't run since 1968, to the salt flats at Bonneville and going at least 450mph. That's what it will take to break the piston driven world land speed record.

The truck that started it all: The Little Red Wagon debuted in the mid 1960s with a non-stop show of wheel stands down the quarter mile. Every school boy at that time built the model kit or raced the slot car (ahem, truck).

A new take on the monster truck theme. Wire wheels totally make this rig into something special. Anyone know the builder?
