In 2016, the "Pioneer Cedar Rocket" set a Guinness World Record for being the fastest motorized log car, reaching a top speed of 47.64 mph on the set of HGTV's Timber Kings at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona.

The car was designed by Bryan Reid Sr., founder of Pioneer Log Homes (and one of the stars of Timber Kings), with his longtime friend Louis Horschel.

Reid told the Williams Lake Tribune in a recent interview that he wouldn't be sad to give up the Cedar Rocket.

"It’s an honour to give it up," Reid said. "It’s exciting to see it go for such a good cause. That is what is was originally designed for, that’s why I went to some of the most high profile shows in North America with it. Pioneer doesn’t need the advertising, we’ve got all the work we can handle."
