Let’s hope Bubba’s attempt during Laconia is better than this ill-fated jump at Del Mar.

Legendary daredevil Bubba Blackwell has announced he will recreate his infamous attempt to break his own record for most cars jumped aboard a Harley-Davidson XR750 on June 12, 2010 at New Hampshire’s Rockingham Park.

Back in 2001, Blackwell spectacularly failed to clear 22 cars in an attempt to surpass his long-standing 20-car jump record from 1998. Blackwell hopes this year’s attempt to clear 22 Ford Focus cars will end in less spectacular fashion than seen in these photos from 2001.
