Three weeks ago, on Oct. 21, Alex Roy arrived in Manhattan, exhausted. He, and his team, Carl Reese and Deena Mastracci, had just done something incredible: Set the record for fastest drive across America in a semi-autonomous vehicle. That’d be 2,995 miles in 57 hours and 48 minutes. Roy, Reese and Mastracci invited The Drive to come along for the ride for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look.
