Guinness World Record: Shortest non-driving time to cross the United States in an electric vehicle

Carl Reese (driver)

From 16–19 April 2015, Rodney Hawk, Deena Mastracci, and Reese drove from Los Angeles to New York City in a Tesla Model S P85D. The non-driving time was 12 hours, 48 minutes, and 19 seconds.

Fastest time to cross the USA in an electric vehicle

The April 16–19, 2015 trip also set the record for the fastest time from Los Angeles to New York City in an electric vehicle. The total trip time was 58 hours and 55 minutes. The trip was supported by Anthony Alvarado, Johnnie Oberg, and Matt Nordenstrom.

Transcontinental autonomous record

From October 18–21, 2015, Deena Mastracci, Reese, and Alex Roy set the first record for the shortest LA-NYC trip with a semi-autonomous car. The trio drove from Redondo Beach, CA in route to Red Ball Garage in Manhattan in 57 hours and 48 minutes. The drivers used the autopilot function of the Tesla Model S P85D for 96.1% of the 2995-mile journey.

Double transcontinental electric vehicle record

On October 22, 2015, after fewer than 28 hours in New York City after the record-breaking autonomous run, Deena Mastracci and Reese drove the Tesla P85D back to the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach, California. A notary stood by to officially log the couple in; a staff member of the Portofino was witness.

The couple set the double transcontinental record for an electric vehicle (round trip LA-NYC-LA) with a time of 6 days, 6 hours, and 22 minutes; this beat the previous record set by Dan Edmunds and Kurt Niebuhrs, which was 6 days, 23 hours, and 4 minutes.

Solo motorcycle record from Los Angeles to New York City

Reese set the record for fastest solo motorcycle from Los Angeles to New York City with a time of 38 hours and 49 minutes. He departed from Winnetka, CA on 28 August 2015 at 3:15 am and arrived in New York City the next day at 9:04 pm. Reese insisted on notaries at both the start and finish lines who verified his identification, engine number, odometer reading, and VIN. The motorcycle used was also tracked by third-party GPS tracking.

Closest Place to the Sun on Earth to the Sea on Motorcycle in a Single Day

On 3 September 2016, Reese and Sebastian Montero were granted special access on Chimborazo in Ecuador to set the new world record for riding on motorcycles from the closest point on Earth to the sun to an elevation at sea level in a single day. Reese and Montero reached a gain/loss in elevation of 56,678 feet during their endeavor. Although Chimborazo is typically off-limits to motorcycles due to the remoteness of the mountain in the case of an emergency, Minister of the Interior José Serrano granted Reese and his team special access to the natural wonder.

Motorcycle Relief Project

Reese and his fiancee Deena Mastracci have set multiple world records to bring attention to Motorcycle Relief Project, a US-based charity that helps combat veterans with PTSD.

Coalition of Hope

On 3 September 2016 Reese set a motorcycle record on Chimborazo in Ecuador to bring awareness to the April 2016 earthquake. Reese's record-setting ride was to bring attention to the "Ecuador Earthquake Relief" project by Coalition of Hope, a US-based charity, and The Ride of My Life YouTube production company.
