‘Mr. Dizzy’ to try record-breaking limo jump at Brawls and Kickstart Days
The Brawls and Kickstart Days festival in Butte is moving to the first weekend in August this year and organizer Monty Klistoff has lined up Mr. Dizzy for the kind of daredevil act not seen here since Evel Knievel Days faded away.
Mr. Dizzy, aka Mike Buse, will try to break his record of 137 feet for the longest distance jumped in a stretch limousine. The stunt is planned for Saturday, Aug. 5, though logistics must be worked out.
“The thing that makes this so huge and dangerous is he’s not just going to attempt to extend the world record to 150 feet, he’s crashing the limo into a heap of cars,” said Klistoff.
He said organizers would take all necessary safety precautions and discuss their plans with any county officials necessary in order to stage the event, but it promises to entertain.
The festival debuted in 2021 and was held the last weekend in July the past two years. It’s being moved back a week this year so it’s not competing with the Headwaters Country Jam in Three Forks or the Butte-Silver Bow County Fair in Butte.
