LAND SPEED LEGENDS, Episode 5. The story of Lee Bible, who crashed in the White Triplex (aka Triplex Special) on Daytona Beach in 1929 while trying to reclaim the land speed record for the United States. Ray Keech had set the record in the Triplex Special the previous year and held it for 11 months, until Henry Segrave in Golden Arrow took it back for Britain. Now Lee Bible is going to take his shot at getting it back.

This is the first episode of an ongoing series on the Imjin War, based on my book “THE IMJIN WAR: Japan’s Sixteenth-Century Invasion of Korea and Attempt to Conquer China.” To kick things off, I give some background on the three main contenders in the conflict: Japan in the sengoku civil war era, as it is conquered / unified by Oda Nobunaga and his successor, Toyotomi Hideyoshi; Korea in the Joseon dynasty, focused on Jurchen tribesmen to the north and wako pirates to the south and oblivious to the emerging threat posed by Hideyoshi; and Ming dynasty China, the Middle Kingdom, the center of the East Asian world. The Chinese are dealing with problems of their own in the Ming dynasty’s declining years and, like the Koreans, are not paying much attention to what is going on in Japan.

A new series on the legends of land speed, names like Craig Breedlove, Art Arfons, Walt Arfons, Nathan Ostich, Athol Graham, Mickey Thompson, Glenn Leasher, Gary Gabelich and more. Brought to you by Samuel Hawley, author of "Speed Duel: The Inside Story of the Land Speed Record in the Sixties," and "Ultimate Speed," the authorized biography of motorsports giant Craig Breedlove.
