Bryan Jackson, who holds multiple official world records, attempted to set his 5th World Record on Saturday, April 13th 2019 in conjunction with the Eastland Chamber of Commerce Rip’s Ribs Cook Off. The attempt was for the World’s Longest Motorcycle Wheelie, at the slowest speed, being 10 miles at 10mph. The weather was intense with high winds, rain and thunderstorms but that didn’t keep Bryan from doing what he promised to do, and that was to try the attempt at 10:00 AM sharp starting at the Eastland Texas County Courthouse and proceed west on Main (State Highway 6) , escorted by law enforcement, to Cisco on 8th Street to Second Chance Ministries Thrift Store. The attempt failed in under 2 minutes, due to the adverse conditions, but Bryan was holding a trump card that only a couple of others knew about. He had actually completed the record in testing a couple of weeks prior and due to the complexity of the wheelie, he had everything in place to document it for registration. This was revealed in his live video feed after his failed attempt as originally scheduled. The video documenting both the failed attempt, and the successful record, can be found online on Bryan’s Facebook page and at www.YouTube.com/VerticalAMM.
In preparation for the attempt, Bryan applied for permits and received approval from the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas Film Commission. Letters of concurrence and approval have also been received from the two cities involved, Cisco, where Bryan was born and raised, and Eastland, where Bryan owns his businesses, Bryans Auto Supply, Bryans Signs, and Bryans Computers. This event brought favorable publicity to Eastland and Cisco, as well as Eastland County.
Bryan and his wife, Tina, founded Vertical Adrenaline Motocross Ministries (VAMM), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in which he is an ordained minister and is also a licensed FCA Chaplain. Bryan travels the country using his accolades, motorcycle racing, and stunt shows, as a platform to captivate and inspire people to pursue Jesus Christ. He has performed his dynamic stunt shows in front of over 100,000 people in the last couple of years, including in schools, churches, parades, arenas, and stadiums. Bryan’s performances, travels, and accolades have been covered in two documentary movies, “Ultimate Adrenaline” and “Adrenaline with The Preacherman”, as well as being featured on multiple TV broadcasts, national trade magazines, newspapers, radio, and digital media companies.
