World Class Speed for Heart and Stroke

Hello and Welcome to World Class Speed for Heart & Stroke

My name is Kevin Munk. In memory of my father, Gordon Munk, who passed away suddenly on December 12, 2012 from heart and stroke related complications, I have decided to make an attempt at setting a land speed record on the Bonneville Salt Flats in his honor to raise funding and awareness for the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

The sudden loss of a cherished loved one has a personal impact beyond measure and we all have a choice in how we respond to life's surprises.

My goal is to make the loss of my dad a positive outcome for the greater good of everyone. I hope to raise $1,000,000 in memory of a one-in-a-million dad to be donated to the Heart & Stroke Foundation towards prevention research, educational campaigns and therapy for actual survivors. Furthermore, it is my desire to encourage everyone to take part in the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s Blood Pressure Action Plan and the Healthy Weight Action Plan. They want to help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Thank you for your time and your support. May your heart beat as strongly for this fundraising challenge as mine does.

All the best,

Kevin Munk

Land Speed Record Events

This year my plan is to return to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah to compete against the clock and to crack the 200 mph mark!


2016 - Unable to hold the appropriate vacation blocks from my career this summer to allow competition. That's the reality for many competitors who pay their own way to the salt. It looks like it would have been a great year to run after two seasons of poor salt. Fingers crossed for a future opportunity.
2015 - Poor salt quality led to cancelled events
2014 - Rained out at two events
2013 - Within 10 mph of the world record in my first time on the salt!


I am always seeking additional corporate sponsors for this event. Interested corporations can email me and I will reply to you in sequence at the next available opportunity to discuss your offers of sponsorship in exchange for advertising your logo in support of this great cause.
