Breaking 200

Steve Rutherford is a retired maintenance welder who successfully broke a land speed record on the Bonneville Salt Plains in a self made land-speed car. In doing so he realized the untapped speed potential of his land-speed car and has set his sights on breaking the 200 mph world record. In preparation for his new challenge, Steve must address a few issues he encountered on his last visit to the Bonneville Salt Plains as well as perform his duties as crew chief, mechanic, mentor, father, brother and grandfather for his family's drag racing team.
