WATCH: Could you win a race with the world's fastest soda machine?

LERNA, Illinois -- There is a soda machine on Maine Street in the small Illinois town of Lerna that has become a legend.

It is said by those who have seen it and used it to be the fastest soda machine in the world.

The soda is dispensed so fast it is said that it is impossible for a single human being to put in the correct change and then reach down and catch it before it hits the bottom of the track.

The above YouTube video was posted in April, but has risen to more than 400-thousand views recently.

So what makes this machine so fast?  Several years ago one local TV reporter from a nearby small town went to find out.
