Breedlove stands to regain the world land speed record in the car after the ratifying body for the record, the International Automobile Federation, decided to recognize attempts by jet-powered cars. Breedlove is likely to take the record from Donald Campbell, having surpassed the Englishman's 403.1 mph with an average speed of 468.72 mph. (Photo by Alan Band/Fox Photos/Getty Images)
