Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bubba Blackwell is a stunt performer and motorcycle jumping world record holder who was sponsored by and promoted Buell Motorcycle Company (Buell was partnered with Harley-Davidson Motorcycles before becoming defunct in October, 2009). Bubba is best known for breaking Evel Knievel's jump record for both cars and buses using a Harley-Davidson XR-750 track race motorcycle. Bubba Blackwell began his career on April 26, 1998, when he jumped 20 cars in Everett, MA, breaking the 19 car record held by Evel Knievel. The following year, on July 4, 1999, Bubba jumped 14 buses at Del Mar Fair in California, tying the record held by Evel Knievel, who leapt 14 buses at Kings Island in 1975 (although Knievel's rear tire touched the 14th bus, his landing was successful). Five months later, Bubba would break Knievel's bus-jumping record by jumping 15 buses.show more
