O’Field passed the previous record at 9:03 a.m. on Dec. 17 in the Walmart parking lot. He began his attempt by pushing a four-door Ford car donated by Stuteville Ford at 1 p.m. the previous day.
“(Jackson) is only one of six Native Americans that has one (record), and I will try to be No. 7, I guess,” O’Field said. “Second, I want to try to raise money for the Angel Tree Program. There is still about 300 kids that haven’t received anything for the Angel Tree, so I’m trying to help them out.”
