David Abbott Jenkins | Mormon Athletes

Having broken several land speed records, daring famous Mormon David Abbott ‘Ab’ Jenkins was one of the many daredevils who raced experimental vehicles across the salt flats in an effort to push the boundaries of how fast a ground-based vehicle could travel. His car, the Mormon Meteor III, was every bit the Mormon celebrity as its driver with it’s distinctive look and performance record.

After this, Jenkins went on to become the celebrity Mormon mayor of Salt Lake City, famously earning this position without giving a single speech.
