"We were going to spend 50 or 60 hours and put a couple axels onto a log and laugh about it," said Reid, Sr. "It ended up [taking] thousands of hours."
So why do it?
"You need a goal in life no matter what you do. Our goal was to build the fastest motorized log in the world."
Mission accomplished for Reid, Sr., and crew. The Cedar Rocket captured the Guinness World Record for 'fastest motorized log,' and will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson to benefit various veterans charities.
"More or less, this is for awareness to show that there [are] soldiers coming back with problems, whether it's physical problems or mental problems, and we want to help them out."
