Eddie Braun completed Evel Knievel’s Snake River Canyon jump on September 16, 2016, in Southern Idaho. He flew 2000 ft high, accelerating up to 430 MPH in just 3.9 seconds.
Eddie Braun spent 3 years and around 1.6 million dollars of his own money, funding this project. Building and designing the steam powered rocket, running tests, and making sure everything was set to go.
Eddie has finished a legacy that Evel Knievel left over 40 years ago. You are an inspiration to the whole stunt community, as well as an inspiration for other kids who will one day grow up to be stuntmen!
