The car reportedly traveled at an average speed of 65 miles per hour until the battery ran out.On average, the Balenger covered a mile in 19 minutes and 4 seconds.

“There was a tremendous sense of satisfaction and relief when I finished this job,” Balenger told Runner’s World. “In many ways, it was the hardest job I’ve ever taken on. I’m very proud of myself and my team for helping me win.”
During the run, Ballenger took short breaks to sleep, eat, brush his teeth, change his clothes, etc. In total, the “down time” amounted to 8.5 hours out of almost 77 credit hours.
