Spring Break Nationals, Daytona Florida.
Craig Butler, of Glenwood GA, and his crew chief Rusty posted an amazing qualifying score of 181.1 db to set the bar for dB Drag Racing’s most extreme SPL score. To set the new world record, Craig had to register (back up his first attempt) with a score greater than 180.2db, the previous world record established in October of 2012. On day two of the competition at Spring Break Nationals, Craig’s heavily modified Astro Van again stunned the crowd with a score of 181.0 db, establishing his new World Record at 181.0 db. The world record was adjudicated by dB Drag Racing’s Jeremy Weber and Matt Giese.
