- Nobody on Earth can ride a snowmobile faster than Rhinelander's Jack Hendricks. A big statement--but one he can back up. Hendricks broke a world record for a quarter mile at a National Straightline Snowmobile Race last month in western Wisconsin.By topping out at nearly 190-miles per hour, Hendricks broke his own world record set in 2010. Competition always gives him a rush--but making history takes the feeling to another level.
"It happened so fast from when you're on the starting line and when you give it gas to accelerate down the track. It's incredible; it's like no feeling. It's unexplainable."Hendricks is glad all his hard work paid off. But he wants to go even faster so the record stays in Rhinelander."I'm sure in the next two or three years when they have another one, someone is going to try to break what I did. We think our goal is we can go 200-miles per hour."To check out the full list of N.S.S.R. world record holders, click the link below.
