Adam Hogerl of Gloucester broke two land speed records April 22-24 at the ECTA Spring Fling in Arkansas. Hogerl hit 198.282 mph to break the 1-mile record and 169.940 mph to set the record in the half-mile.
Hogerl and crew chief James Diggs brought his sprint car and Pro Stock 94 Trans Am to Arkansas to compete. The two newly broken records bring Hogerl’s held land speed records total to eight.
In the attempt to add to his growing collection of records, Hogerl said the engines in both cars blew on the last day of the event while trying to break 200 mph. He said the breakdowns will probably keep him sidelined for the rest of the year while he and his team regroup.
