NICK EICHER, HOST: Formula One driver Michael Andretti is one of the most successful American race car drivers in history. But he’s not resting in his laurels.
He just set a new world record for the top speed in a new kind of race car.
If you can believe it, Andretti reached speeds of just over 17 miles per hour!
That’s not fast, you say? Well, it is if you’re driving a car made out of cake!
That’s right! Andretti now owns the Guinness World Record for top speed in an edible cake car.
To qualify for the record, the car had to be at least 90 percent edible. He beat that at 91 percent edible. A cake set upon an aluminum chassis.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
