sig haugdahl

Sig Haugdahl, of Albert Lea, MN ran a world record pace of 180 m.p.h. in the Wisconsin Special on the beach at Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1922, breaking the previous world record by 24 m.p.h. The car was 16 feet long, 30 inches wide, with direct drive, and was powered by an 836 cu. in., 250 h.p. Wisconsin all-aluminum 6-cylinder aero-engine. Sig's run was not recognized as a world record however, as Sig was not a member of the American Automobile Association at the time.
