Watch as driver resets record with sub-10 second lap at 3/8-mile oval

BY foxsports • September 4, 2016

Saturday night, Andy Bozell reset the record for the fastest ever lap to be turned at a 3/8-mile paved oval at Kalamazoo Speedway in Michigan.

It was all part of an event called the "Call of the Wild," in which several drivers each got a shot to see if they could break Mike Shewchuk's previous record, which he set last year at the same event.

In Sept. 2015, Shewchuk set the first ever sub-10 second lap for a 3/8-mile paved oval with a time of 9.924 seconds (136 mph).

Saturday night, Bozell didn't just beat the old record, he smashed it, with a 9.465-second (142 mph) run - 0.459 seconds faster!

Now that looks like fun! Although we are curious if his team had to have a bucket on standby for when he got out...
