When it comes to breaking Guinness World Records titles, few people know the feeling better than TV star and former professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek.

Known for his hit MTV shows "Fantasy Factory," "Rob & Big," and "Ridiculousness," Dyrdek has amassed nearly two dozen world records in his career, ranging from building the largest skateboard to hitting the most skateboard heelflips in one minute.

Now, driving a Chevrolet Sonic, Dyrdek can add one more record to his illustrious resume: the farthest reverse ramp jump by a car, with a distance of 89 feet 3.25 inches (27.21 m). Watch here as he talks about, and pulls off, this stunning achievement.

Dyrdek performed the stunt before spectators at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif., while MTV filmed the jump for the season finale of “Fantasy Factory,” which is set to air on March 13 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. To qualify for the record, Dyrdek had to not only make the jump, but successfully land the car on the catch ramp and drive away from the stunt.

"I've gotten all these world records over the years...this was just a cool opportunity to get back with Chevy and do something," Dyrdek said. "It's been an honor to do it over the years."
