BJ & Jamie: Rocket man to break Evil's record! 9/16 (AUDIO)

September 16, 2016

New Stunt man is trying to recreate Evil Knievel’s Snake River canyon jump. He says he expects to not make it and could die. He has set his family up with councelors for the kids and financially just in case.

On September 8, 1974, with much media fanfare, daredevil Evel Knievel tried and failed to leap the mile-wide chasm of the Snake River Canyon on his specially engineered rocket motorcycle. His drogue parachute malfunctioned and opened on take-off. Evel and his contraption floated to the bottom of the canyon, landing on the riverbank directly below his launch ramp (If he'd gone into the river, his safety harness probably would have drowned him). - See more at: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2961#sthash.2nAmGT5H.dpuf
