According to,* the President of Pioneer Log Homes just achieved a Guinness World Record for creating the fastest motorized log, a record which, at least for now, is uncontested. Bryan Reid Sr.’s record-setting cedar log vehicle is named the “Cedar Rocket,” and it will later be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson with all proceeds going to support veterans of war.

The “Cedar Rocket”

The vehicle is said to be created mostly from a single tree. During a test run at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Arizona, the cedar log topped out at a speed of about 55 mph, a speed that Reid says would have been much faster if he had more distance for the run.

The proceeds for the log’s eventual sale go to an important cause. Creating such a novel vehicle is also interesting in and of itself because it demonstrates the versatility of wood materials. Wood is well-suited to some of humanity’s more creative endeavors. From houses to trailers and now a car of sorts, wood has been used for a variety of siding purposes. Even when considering the application of logs to the structures we live in, logs have enabled creative people across the globe to dwell in a wide variety of houses, from the rustic to the most elegant. Campers and tiny houses can even be created in the log-home style.
