The tragic case occurred in Oregon, USA, in the Alvord desert. The dried-up lake, located in the middle of the desert, has long been favored by fans of speed records. Earlier, in October 2013, Combs achieved an incredible 640.5 km/h on this track behind the wheel of a jet-powered Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger. Later, the rider managed to reach the mark of 772 km / h, but this record remained unconfirmed.
