By the age of 16, he had already sold and bought multiple cars and was legally able to drive. Richard graduated from Eastern Hills High School in 1987 as a student.

Richard Rawlings, a passionate transcontinental runner who has participated in many rallies, is also Richard Rawlings. Rawlings used to be the Cannonball Run’s fastest man, but someone beat him in 2013. Rawlings covered the distance of 2811 miles from New York City to Los Angeles in just 31 hours and 59 mins to beat the record. The record had been held since 1979. This is equivalent to driving an average speed of 87.6 MPH. He also won twice the Gumball 3000, and The Bullrun, which is an unprecedented feat.

Cannonball Run/Bullrun

Richard Rawlings, along with Dennis Collins, were said to have beat the Cannonball Run’s 1979 time of 32 hours 51 minutes. This was in May 2007. Jay Riecke, their rival, bet that they could beat their Bullrun 2007 entry. It was a black Ferrari550 with additional fuel cells. The final time they achieved was 31 hours and 59 mins. However, this time is still controversial because of the differences in distance and times.

They beat Jack May and Rick Cline’s 1975 time in a Ferrari Dino. The competitors didn’t leave at the correct places, or they took routes that were not compatible with the original Cannonball Runs from the 1970s. Their personal heroes Dave Heinz, and Dave Yarborough (who set the record in 1979 with a Jaguar XJ-S, leaving from Darien in Connecticut, instead of Manhattan) were unable to beat them.
