February 2014: Valencia, CA: Rob Dyrdek and the Chevrolet Sonic have launched themselves into GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R) glory together- backwards!

In a gravity defying automotive stunt, television star and former professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek commandeered a Chevrolet Sonic in the Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump by a Car.

The spectacular stunt, which took place before ecstatic spectators at Six Flags Magic Mountain, totaled 89 feet and 3 1/4 inches. Dyrdek successfully landed the Sonic on the catch ramp and was able to drive away from the stunt to meet the Guinness requirements - thereby qualifying both the car and the driver as GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS record holders.

This is the second time Dyrdek has achieved a Chevy Sonic "first." In December 2011, Dyrdek successfully performed a 360-degree kick-flip off a ramp, also in a Sonic.
