Thumbs up Speed Record Has Been Broken !!!

Darren Luhrs, 25, of Woodcliff Lake -- set a world record for a physically disabled person when he throttled a powerboat to 130 mph.

If you recall, Darren went 120.2 mph 3 years ago.

Darren is a inspiration to me and on behalf of The Jersey Boyz, Team: The Delicate Sound Of Thunder and OPA I would like to say HOW VERY PROUD WE ARE OF YOU DARREN. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!You are the man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Augie"The Godfather" Pensa and Kevin"Bert" Hans.
