North Texas man wins right to re-create Evel Knievel jump

 

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A Texas motorcycle stuntman has won the right to try to re-create Evel Knievel's Snake River Canyon jump on the 40th anniversary of the failed effort.

The Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/16PEJKn) Big Ed Beckley and Beckley Media LLC of Bridgeport, Texas, bid $943,000 Friday for a two-year lease on the state land near Twin Falls where the jump took place in September 1974.

Beckley also must pay $25,000 a year to the Idaho Department of Lands for each of the two years, have a $10 million in commercial liability insurance and turn over a share of the revenue from the event to the state.

Beckley still must obtain permits from the city of Twin Falls and agree to post other bonds and insurance based on the specifics of his plan.
