The Buckeye Bullet has set another record. The electric car operated by a team of students at Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research set the land-speed record for an electric car this week on the Bonneville Salts flats in Utah. 

The car set the record by going an average of 341.4 miles per hour on back-to-back runs.

For WOSU's sports show After the Score, Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley spoke with David Cooke, a former student member of the Buckeye Bullet team who now works at the research center full-time.
